"Linux users know that burning discs is an important aspect of
staying on top of the game. First of all it allows you to keep
solid backups of your data. Second, it's the best way to get that
lastest version of your favorite distribution from an FTP download
site to the installation on your hard drive.
"And in typical Linux fashion, there are many ways to accomplish
this goal. From command line to stand alone GUI to fully
desktop-integrated tool, you can get your data (or ISO) onto a CD
or DVD in many ways. One such way is the Brasero CD/DVD burner.
Brasero is the default burner for the GNOME desktop. For data and
ISO burning, Brasero features:
"Support for multiple backends.
Edition of disc contents.
Burn on the fly.
Write image to hard drive.
Disc file integrity check."
