So opensuse 11.0 beta 1 has been released. I decided i'd be adventurous and give it a whirl, so i fired up my mac and downloaded the ISO while i was in college. When i got home i realised that i had never actually burned an ISO on my mac before, and there didn't seem to be any built in software to do it.

So, i fired up google and expected to have to download trial software to burn the image and suffer all sorts of hassle and annoyance. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was frikin simple to burn an iso:

$ hdutil burn image.iso

It's now 5 miutes later, and i'm just about to reboot into the Live CD environment, very nice!

And people hate to use the command line in Linux to do simple things because ...

I have a sneaky feeling that there might be an mac-tuitive way of burning an ISO (maybe drag the iso on the icon of the burner ?)

You can do it with Disk Utility if you want a GUI:

I had some fun with OpenSUSE 11, but ended up switching back to Ubuntu Hardy.
