I'm big into linux but it's fairly easy to write the installation images to a USB

Agreed but sometimes they're flaky and you get weird errors. With physical media, if anything goes wrong you know the problem isn't with the boot media.

it was apparently a format war betw. two groups of companies but the manufacturers were able to incorporate both formats in the drives

I feel like this was an awesome technology that was really short lived. Being able to put thousands of mp3s on one disc was huge.

the longevity of burned discs seems to be hit or miss. some people have reported problems after a few years

I dunno I haven't used one in 20 years. wasn't it the rewritable ones that never actually rewrote back then or something. I remember them being a pita.
