    • xboot is still available, I use it all the time. It's still the best product I've found for launching an ISO directly within windows without rebooting. Forget the complexity with VMs' just drag the iso into xboot and it launches. No reboot, no install.

Great For Quick Bootable ISOs

about Rufus Aug 2014

I haven't used it enough to really write a review on it but the couple of times I used Rufus it was super fast and super easy. The only thing I could possibly gripe about is the lack of formatting to EXT3 or EXT4, but most modern Linux distros have no trouble reading FAT32.
