    It is awesome that Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2, are able to burn ISO images. What we need now is an ability to mount ISO images as virtual CD/DVD drives natively within Windows.

    Ideally both within Windows explorer and on the command line. MSDN used to provide a Virtual CD utility to do this although a version was never released for Windows Vista and it doesn’t work on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

    In addition to saving money by not creating a CD or DVD, an installation of Microsoft Office, for example, is much faster from a virtually mounted ISO image.

    I personally don’t mind if this is released as a separate download, either through MSDN or for everyone, but this really would be cool.

    I could probably pay for the Windows 7 upgrade alone with all the DVD’s I wouldn’t have to buy in a year from burning all the software I download from MSDN subscriber downloads.
