Additional Comments

Rufus is by far the best tool for creating bootable usb sticks. DD is old hack and doesn't work well with many new distros. Unetbootin is limited. Multiboot apps (Yumi, Multi System, MultiBoot, etc.) leave many components off of installed isos due to persistence issues and compatibility. Rufus has all components for distro installation. If it doesn't, a window will open asking if Rufus can add it for you from internet source. After testing all known apps for this purpose, Rufus is best. It would be so great if one could use Rufus on Linux Mint or Ubuntu instead of always booting into Windows for only one application. If these few bugs were worked out of Wine/Rufus compatibility, it would be perfect!
