One of my wishes for a future Fedora is also an easy way to install
from USB stick. I prefer to use the normal install instead of the
livecd/stick and currently you have to burn a CD / DVD to make this
work.

Most of the PCs can boot from USB sticks now and you get the sticks as
gift everywhere now, they are the new AOL CD. Some of the new current
computers also don't come with CD/DVD drives any more - for example
netbooks.

USB sticks are also reusable and more environment friendly than disks.
