Burning an ISO image of your favorite Gnu/Linux distribution to a CD or DVD is often one of the first steps one goes through when switching from another operating systems or simply wanting to try a Live CD.
If you are ever in a situation where you need to burn an ISO image on Windows, or if you’re providing someone with information on how to do so, you may want to consider adding InfraRecorder (released under GPL) to your toolbox. Infrarecorder will be featured in one of the upcoming self-learning videos from ILearnLinux.com.
