      UNetbootin vs SARDU opinions
      This alternative is disputed. UNetbootin is still a legitimate alternative to SARDU, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      UNetbootin is for flashing a single image to a USB stick. SARDU is for using multiple images on a single USB stick.
