Highlights
Nifty Free Image Viewers
One of my favorite adages is "A picture is worth a thousand words". It refers to the notion that a still image can convey a complex idea. Images can portray a lot of information quickly and more efficiently than text. They capture memories, and never let you forget something you want to remember, and refresh it in your memory.

There is no need to have root access for mounting (mount is done via FuseIso, so ISO, BIN, NRG, IMG, and MDF are supported). Conversion from extra image formats to ISO and ISO creation from files or media are supported.

  • xorriso
    xorriso maps file objects from POSIX compliant filesystems into Rock Ridge enhanced ISO 9660 filesystems and allows session-wise manipulation of such filesystems. It can load the management information of existing ISO images, and it writes the session results to optical media or to filesystem objects. This is the standalone version which incorporates the libraries of libburnia-project.org and thus depends only on Linux 2.4 (or later), libc, and libpthread. No separate mkisofs and no CD/DVD burn program are needed.
