As usual I am confused by this discussion. As far as I can see
cdrecord, k3b and xcdroast can effectively use only CD-R disks.
They can not format CD-RW disks as Windows software can do allowing
you to use the CD just like you would use a hard drive in reading and
writing to it. So why would anyone use the more expensive CD-RW disks
on Linux systems?

Does anyone have a different take on this matter?
