My father often burns Live CDs of different versions of linux. He bought a new laptop the other day and he wanted to throw KUbuntu on it. We have an old copy of Nero 6 and a trial of Nero 9, but neither would work with Windows Vista. I set out to find a different solution and I found one, ISO Burner from the oddest place, ntfs.com
It will only burn you an ISO but it does it with no price and it works really well. Here are just some of the things I noticed.
- The interface is so simple and so uncluttered. And there is single settings dialogue with no additional tabs.
- The program is excellent at burning ISOs, so far, there has not been a single failure. When I’ve burned with Nero, I’ve had a good share of those failures.
- The second highest burn speed is used rather than the fastest. It’s a wise choice and pretty clever too.
- It can also be run from the command line which could be useful in some cases.
Anyway, my opinion isn’t important since I hardly burn anything, let alone ISOs. Here is what my father has to say about ISO Burner.
- It’s very small.
- The program will link to all ISO file types to it, so there is no searching for files.
He likes it and that’s what counts.
