"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.
Multi-session support.
Joliet-extension support.
Write image to hard drive.
Disc file integrity check."
