Really? OMG IMGBurn is for CD/DVDs just sayin
Seems you may be surprised how useful a piece of software like IMGBurn actually is still, even in 2018. Especially in the professional IT industry let alone for home users.
Also before Rufus was good at creating UEFI bootable USB's, IMGBurn DVD's were still the way to go. Thought admittedly I primarily use bootable USB's where possible, but I have a USB DVD drive and a few of what I would consider field-necessary DVD's full of goodies and OSes to deploy in the field. Saves time, gets the job done. That's what matters.
I prefer Rufus for USB, IMGBurn for CD/DVD. As-far-as Linux based distros, I usually just default to Ubuntu anymore, even for older systems. I play around with other distros for server environments, but for end-user system situations, Ubuntu (w/Gnome) gets the job done quite nicely when you want to step away from a Windows environment. Mint is a solid option as well.
