v702 failed to create a bootable USB drive with the official Ubuntu 20.04 ISO. Rufus succeeded though.

Latest version won't launch under windows XP.
Last compatible version seems to be 6.61 for XP.

I used this program successfully to get Ubuntu set up on an old Mac.

This is ideal for installing Linux distros. Has worked flawlessly so far. Can't say the same for similar apps.

up to version 5.85 now at sourceforge.

abc: thanks for the response -- you're right that it doesn't allow for installation of multiple distributions as some of these tools do and I've modifed the entry. However, I didn't take directly from their website because this program will also work with non-Linux ISOs.

from pfc: "UNetbootin allows you to create bootable operating systems to a USB drive without burning a CD."

from the website: "UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD."

The first sentence is unclear if one could install one or two operating systems on a single USB stick, which is untrue if I remember correctly.

Ever notice how sometimes a comment thread is like a metaphor?

This one explains why Linux hasn't yet taken over the desktop market ... The average user doesn't want to get into a squabble with Eddie Deezen from Wargames.

Why not just use the official download link?
