I'm using UNetbootin for a decade and it is very useful to improve my workflow.

UNetbootin was fine at one point but it rarely works anymore. I'd recommend using balenaEtcher icon balenaEtcher or Rufus icon Rufus for booting Linux distributions or using Boot Camp icon Boot Camp on macOS icon macOS in order to boot Windows.

I'm always having problems with UNetbootin. I do recommend MultiBootUSB or Rufus.

Broken under macOS Catalina. No fix in sight (yet) and equivalent tools don't work either under said OS or don't write Windows ISO images to USB. In other words, stay away until there's a fix.
