Actually an embedded CD/DVD burner would be a cool app to help people burn ISO's. I don't know how many times I seen people download a linux ISO, and end up with CD containing the ISO file. Sigh.

This is not even the worst outcome!

If they have installed something like WinRAR then said ISO is shown as archive and can be opened as one - thus they end up with files extracted from "archive" and then saved on CD. Of course the resulting CD is unbootable, but it looks genuine enough on first glance...
