    JSGTFAAIFAETWTAOTOTF = Just search google to find any acronym, it's faster and easier than wading through an obscure thread on ten forums. :)

    Thanks, Top Gun, but that's a bit more comprehensive than I want to contend with.

    I will definitely grab it for reference, though.

    No confusion if you put a dot before ISO, that means same as *.iso and means a file in that format.
    True, but the ISO (IOS) does a lot more than standardize install media. Tons of stuff.

    My example was only as file name extension for that format.

    TDR's are a pain as well.

    I took it as you were referring to why they decided to call it ISO, to avoid that confusion.
