It would indeed be preferable that Xfburn be improved dramatically.

Currently on my Windows partition, I've got a Free app called InfraRecorder
( This is exactly the kind of thing
that I'd like Xfburn to become. It handles all of the things you'd like to
use a CD/DVD burner for, has a clean, minimal interface (even uses the Tango
icons) and isn't burdened with the superfluous features that other burners
tend to integrate (audio ripping, etc). The installer only weighs in at a
2.56 MB too. I recommend anyone with a Windows partition/machine to take a
look at it.
