What's an ISO?


I know I should know this, but I can't remember what "ISO" means.
I've been busy with other projects, and I forget what release of Ubuntu I'm using. The computer I use the most is running Windoze 7, and I have Ubuntu running on two other machines but use them infrequently.

ISO is often (mis)used as the term to describe a filesystem image, where the filesystem type is of the ISO-9660 format. These are frequently used to distribute images that are intended to be burned to optical media, or mounted on Linux loop devices, in a way that provides filesystem access to the image content.
