I remember a while back when I last used that other OS, that it was a
pain to do something as simple as burn an iso image to cdrom*. If that
is still the case, and if there is an OSS solution to that, perhaps it
could all be bundled in the 'fedora burning tool for windows' package.
Just a thought...
* yes, most users will have some 3rd party solution they are familiar
with, but I still think it would be cool to not depend on such things.
