Well since windows 7, people only need to put in a blank DVD and use the applications key while on the file, and go to burn ISO
The issue being that there are way, way, way more actual burn errors with optical media, which is my central point.  I have had certain machines where it was a 50/50 shot for any CD/DVD being burned whether it would ultimately work.  I have not had that experience, ever, with USB media.

Neither way is right or wrong.  I just prefer what's been, in my experience, more reliable and where the media used can be reused a virtually unlimited number of times and is way easier to carry around.  When you add the fact that many newer laptops don't even have an optical drive . . .
