Yes! I like this a lot. Much less waste booting from USB flash. Might as well educate users to do this.
it makes us friendly
Unfortunately, some multiboot-USBs, some ISOs, and some BIOS create some problems while booting (for example, not booting at all), or while trying to install the distro from the USB media.
Liking the idea as it may also increase the priority of developing easier ways of creating LiveUSBs in particularly multi distro LiveUSBs. Perhaps go one better and figure out a way of doing a boot install from a cloud.
As time has gone by I have tended to try out new versions in VB with a virtual cd/dvd but, we should be pushing the idea to use usb sticks and the like instead of discs.

Recycling CD's is not mainstream (maybe in some countries). You have a complex metal/plastic thing that the local recycle plants don't know if they should burn or deposit.
I never even thought of the environmental impact of burning CD after CD... I'm somewhat shocked in myself to be honest.
Now I have to go buy an iPod so I'm not burning CDs for the car
Yes, a very good idea. I'm for it!
LiveUSBs a much better for everyday-use than LiveCDs.
