It’s been a very long time since I used bashburn.
There are two reasons for that. First, because my initial work with bashburn was less than successful. That was about seven years ago though, so that criticism doesn’t really hold much water now.
The other reason is my slow and eventual drift away from CDs. That’s not a personal transformation, just a tendency to rely more and more on USB drives over optical media.
Where I used to burn CDs as backups, I now just use leftover hard drives and drive enclosures. And where I used to burn CDs to install distros, I now just inject ISOs onto flash drives with unetbootin.
Now, to add insult to injury, I don’t even have an optical drive on this machine. I could buy one I suppose, but I rarely use CDs any more.
And so we come full circle.
Regardless, bashburn is one of a handful of CD/DVD writing options at the console. For some reason, it seems the majority of burning tools come in graphical form.
Of course, as you probably know, 99 percent of those GUIs are just sending instructions to the command line. But we’ve probably talked about that before. …
If this works for you, leave a note. I’d be curious to get your impression of it.
