Another great point from PCPro.
Here’s the thing:
Windows 7 comes with a built-in ISO burner, so if you download a recovery disc, or perhaps a Linux installer, you can burn it to a DVD with a simple double-click.
That’s good, but Microsoft can do better. Sometimes, you just want to check the contents of an ISO, or access a single file from the installer. Windows already lets you look inside zip files, and pull out the files you want, so why not offer the same convenience for ISOs?
Ideally, you could even create your own ISO files, mount them as virtual drives, and read and write files as if the image were a real disk.
Very well said if I say so myself.
