UBCD V3.0 uses the same FreeDOS image to launch most of the DOS apps on the UBCD that can be launched this way. This helps tremendously in maintenance (because if there are bugs in the FreeDOS boot disk, we can simply fix one image instead of 50), and reduces the size of the ISO image. The downside is that the FreeDOS image comes with a lot of additional boot options (eg. memory config, USB, CD-ROM, NTFS etc), but you can ignore them and they will just timeout and choose some reasonable settings. So launching the application is a tad slower then under V2.4, but it’s all for the better.
