It burned a folder from a network drive to a DVD-R without any third-party software, with clear and relevant instructions for every step. It auto-detected the type of medium, buffered data locally before the burn, and let me choose between an open DVD that could be appended to or a finished that was readable everywhere. I really can think of no way to improve on the experience. This is better than Roxio which I used on the previous machine, and far better than Nero which I had to root out from my hard disk and registry as it was worse than useless.
Moving data between storage devices is one of the things an operating system SHOULD do, in my opinion, and doing it well is a major star in the book.
