The same hybrid image can be burned to a CD, DVD or dumped to a hard disk-like media, such as a USB stick.

@passstab -The correct link is http://wiki.geteasypeasy.com/Hybrid_ISO/IMG_format like in my original message.

I'm happy to see this idea implemented!

Time has passed and Hybrid ISOs have been adopted - I'm marking this idea as "Implemented"

sooo it can be burned onto a disk... or dragged and dropped onto a USB stick? sounds like a great idea!

I think that hybrid images or just USB stick images as well as iso images are a great idea. I always install of a USB stick, so this would make my life much easier.

I see that Linux Mint is used as an example to create "Live USB drives from ISO files" - http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/unetbootin/wiki/guide

you can use Unetbootin to do something similar to this idea. http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ this is certainly what i use these days.

@Hammeh - See http://wiki.geteasypeasy.com/Hybrid_ISO/IMG_format for the technical explanation. The "Hybrid ISO/IMG format" is used by EasyPeasy, PUD GNU/Linux and Pardus 2009.1 as far as I know.

As far as I know, the .iso files are an exact copy of what is held on the optical storage. Therefore it would not be possible to write it directly to a USB pen.
