Editors' Review for Rufus

Rufus is a great utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives. It is simple, all functions in one interface,very easy to use. It is small, only 1.1 MB, and you don't need to install it, just download the executable and run it. It is powerful and fast, for instance it's about twice as fast as UNetbootin, Universal USB Installer or Windows 7 USB download tool, on the creation of a Windows 7 USB installation drive from an ISO. It is also marginally faster on the creation of Linux bootable USB from ISOs. Rufus is an open-source project, free and credible。

format and create bootable USB flash drives

Rufus is a utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc. It can be especially useful for cases where: you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.) you need to work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed you need to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS you want to run a low-level utility

Rufus is fast

For instance it's about twice as fast as UNetbootin, Universal USB Installer or Windows 7 USB download tool, on the creation of a Windows 7 USB installation drive from an ISO. It is also marginally faster on the creation of Linux bootable USB from ISOs.
Version : 3.8 (2019-09-16)
Fix regression where some ISOs (Debian) would produce a Syslinux error when booting in BIOS mode
Fix potential 0xC0030057 errors when trying to create a persistent partitions on a non-FIXED drive

Version : 3.7 (2019-09-09)
Finalize persistent partition support for Debian and Ubuntu:
Debian with persistence should work out of the box with any recent Debian Live ISO.
Ubuntu with persistence should also work IF using a post 2019.08.01 ISO (such as daily-live).
Note that, because of bug #1489855, trying to use persistence with Ubuntu ISOs that were released before August 2019 will only result in rescue mode during boot - You have been warned!
Other distros may work with persistence as long as they use a Debian-like or Ubuntu-like method, and, in the case of Ubuntu-like, if they use casper with the #1489855 bugfix.
Add cheat mode (Alt) to switch between percent/speed/ETA on some operations [EXPERIMENTAL]
Report SuperSpeed+ devices in the log (Come on USB-IF, just add "Ludicrous Speed" already!)
Fix UI checkboxes (Extended label, Fixes for old BIOSes) being cleared on START
Fix Can't mount GUID volume regression when creating Windows To Go drives
Fix Volume label is invalid error with empty labels on Windows 7
Fix stale progress bar during standalone ext2/ext3 formatting
Fix an extraction failure with R-Drive Image bootable ISOs
Disable ISO mode for Pop!_OS
Other cosmetic and internal improvements
