"One of the best things of Linux distributions being free (as in
beer, in this case) is that this means you can download your
favorite distribution online. Now, most of these distributions can
be installed over the network, from another partition of your hard
drive, or off of a CD. If you want to install a CD, and you don't
want to pay for the distribution, you can get ISO images of the
distributions and burn them to CD."
"This makes CD-RW drives even more enticing to Linux users, and
their ability to copy and create audio CDs isn't bad either. In
this review, I will discuss the PlexWriter 12/10/32A, an ATAPI
"The PlexWriter 12/10/32A is the latest entry in Plextor's long
line of CD-recordable/rewriteable drives. Besides sporting faster
speeds, which can make a big difference in CD-RW drives, this drive
also sports Sanyo's new BURNProof technology, licensed for use in
the Plextor. What BURNProof does is prevent fatal buffer underruns
by stopping the recording process when the flow of data is
interupted by other programs taking up CPU and disk time. Once the
interuption stops, it resumes recording the next frame right after
the last recorded frame. This helps prevent wasted time for those
burning CD-RWs and the all-to-common coasters (useless discs) when
burning CD-R discs."
