    Phoronix: Fedora's Qt-Based Media Writer Seeing Improvements

    Fedora Media Writer is the project's cross-platform utility for deploying Fedora install images to USB drives in an easy-to-user manner and for selecting from the various Fedora spins. One of Red Hat's engineers has recently been working on some modernization improvements to this Fedora image writer...

        Good example of writing Gnome applications in Qt instead of GTK.

            Yeah, how come they did? I thought 144Hz kept saying Fedora doesn't use anything else than GTK on their main flavor?

              One of the explicit goals of the Fedora Workstation was to blend in applications that used Qt and Red Hat sponsored a bunch of work related to that. This application both served as an example of what could be done while also serving a real functional purpose because of the cross platform nature of it.

                I just discovered Ventoy, and so far so good. If it continues to work as advertised, I can drop in whatever ISO images I want and choose which to load at boot time. This is something I wanted for a while.

                    Media writer is essentially doing an equivalent of dd. If a software can cause a usb drive to be never usable again, that sounds more like a hardware issue. You have a bug report filed on this?
