Recording an .iso-File in Ubuntu

I am using Ubuntu productive for about two weeks now. The switch was not the easierst but I am missing nothing yet from the windows world. Last week I discovered a Windows-to-Linux roadmap, where Part 6. Working with partitions and file systems impressed me a lot.

Everything’s a file

This part 6 says, that everything in linux is a file. We can now use this for iso-creation by simply typing the following command in our shell:

guru@guru-desktop:~$ cp /dev/cdrom MyCD.iso

cp copies file a to file b so from /dev/cdrom to MyCD.iso which will be placed in our personal folder. No more extra tools needed like in windows.
