Any one used this? Is it any good?
It's rated 4.55/5.0 on majorgeeks.com (but only 9 reviewers)
In particular, I'd be interested in experiences on WinXP/32bit Pro and Win7/64bit Pro.

http://majorgeeks.com/LiLi_USB_Creator_d6934.html

Supports: Win XP/2003/08/Vista/Windows7
Supports many Linux distributions: Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, OpenSUSE, Mint, Slax, CentOS, ArchLinux, Gentoo, PCLinuxOS, Sabayon, BackTrack, Puppy Linux ...

CLAIMS (among other things)
LiLi is a completely free and open-source software for Windows only. It has been built with simplicity in mind and it can be used by anybody. All you have to do is to pick up a Linux in the list and give it a try.

No reboot needed
Are you sick of having to reboot your PC to try Linux ? No need with LiLi. It has a built-in virtualization feature that lets you run your Linux in Windows just out of the box!

I use and love it. I have a persistent Fedora system on my flash drive just in case and I used LiLi to create it. It automated the whole process and I believe it is possible to do without formatting the flash drive. One down side is I never could get the virtual pc thing to work. But besides that, I would recommend using LiLi over any other method.

I see in your profile you have Win7 Home. As I interpret this chart, you have to use Win7 Enterprise or Ultimate to support that.

Assuming that it means this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VHD_%28file_format%29

But I was also interpreting the description in majorgeeks to mean it has its own virtualization engine, so you can use the other versions of Windows it claims to support: 'Win XP/2003/08/Vista/Windows7" As I noted earlier, I also don't have Win7 Enterprise or Ultimate.

It uses Sun's Oracle's Virtual Box to do its virtualization. (I am sorry if my saying "virtual pc" misled you) I have Windows 7 Pro x64 (Is there an enterprise? I forgot that.) but I have had Virtual Box working for other situations. I never tried really hard to get the the flash drive Linux to work in Virtual Box so you may (and probably will) have better luck.

EDIT: It uses it's own, standalone version of Oracle's Virtual Box
