Fedora 24 is set to feature a new Live USB Creator and it will become a primary download method for those wishing to download a new Fedora release.

The Fedora Wiki page pertaining to the new feature explains, "The new Fedora Live USB Creator that is being finished has an overhauled, more user friendly interface. Because USB sticks are the most common way to install Fedora, it should be the primary download option. It cover the whole installation media creation, it lets the user pick the right flavor of Fedora, downloads its image, and copies it to a USB drive."
