    • Actually seems to work under OS X unlike Unetbootin now cemagrJan 2017 • 9 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Doing a Arch bootable key was a nightmare on a Mac with UNetbootin, no way to make it working. With Etcher one try and it was perfectly ok :) Guest • Jul 2016 • 6 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Etcher combines the universality of UNetbootin with the functionality of Rufus and adds an incredible and simple interface. ATShields934Aug 2016 • 5 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Very simple, great interface, Awesome! :) bl4ckf4llApr 2017 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Works on more operating systems. Better language support. Truly open source and free. onesnappOct 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • I have a 64GB USB key, and UNetbootin kept insisting on creating an odd FAT32 partition that always failed to boot properly. Also, Windows and Mac had trouble identifying and/or reading it. Etcher worked the first time. No confusing setup options, just select the .iso and burn. Simple like it should be! Guest • Mar 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • Very simple and effective, creates a bootable USB key almost in a single click (very unusual considering everyone is struggling with UNetbootin since many years!) Guest • Jun 2018 Disagree   Agree

    • There's more to creating a bootable USB drive than moving blocks of bits. Guest • Jul 2018 • 5 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • its not a burning iso software.. Guest • Apr 2018 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Not a full-featured GUI-application like the rest, but way more flexible, versatile and reliable for more tech-savvy users. Guest • Sep 2016 • 4 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's easier than GUI if you won't deal with UEFI stuff Guest • May 2017 • 3 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • MultiSystem

(via http://www.pendrivelinux.com/multiboot-create-a-multiboot-usb-from-linux/ )

    • MultiSystem is good alternative to UNetBootin and builds a menu of isos to allow you select which image to load. UNetBootin only allows the installation of one image/distro per pendrive. Guest • Dec 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
