When I upgraded my PC a while ago also a new DVD-recorder was included, a really nice Asus-DVD-recorder with support for everything, including dual-layer, DVD-RAM and Lightscribe.
I have already used Lightscribe before for a few EasyLFS-CDs that I had planned to give out (but never managed to do) and now I have bought some Lightscribe-DVDs in order to get really cool Fedora 8 DVDs.
Although the result might not be perfect, it's still pretty cool. :-) I really start to like Lightscribe, although the disks are a bit more expensive than regular CDs/DVDs.
But hey, you got to pay more if you want more, right? And it really looks so much cooler than just writing on the disk with a marker.
Just check it out by yourself, I attached a photo for you.
