DVD-R dates to 1997; cheap USB flash devices are now pervasive. Maybe it's time to move on from CD.
+1 on dropping CD images. I haven't burnt a CD in over 10 years and I don't believe I have seen a CD only drive in that time. Even with a CD size image I have burnt them to DVD, I first started this because transfer speeds of DVD's are faster and nowadays it costs almost the same to burn a DVD. So I see zero benefit to using CD's and that's before thinking of reusable USB devices. I do think there is a benefit to keeping the small boot only image available that can be used to start/recover a machine that can then download any data to be installed. -- FreeBSD - the place to B...Storing Data Shane Ambler _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
