    • 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 • 0 agrees and 1 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
    • 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 • 2 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • It's easier than GUI if you won't deal with UEFI stuff Guest • May 2017 • 8 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • ROSA Image Writer

    Optical drives are rapidly disappearing from our computers of all kinds, and consequently installing operating systems from USB flash disks is becoming increasingly popular. ISO images of the ROSA Linux distribution were originally intended for burning to DVD disks, but they can as well be written to flash disks which would allow you to boot from them and launch the Live system or start installation.
