And Ola forces you to either pre-pay or pay in cash before you get out of the car. It's a big hassle. Uber is miles better. You can pay whenever you want with a credit card, or you can pre-pay. No cash, no hassle at the end of your ride. Also, the app accepts destination coordinates. I literally don't need to interact with the driver at all.

What does Windows explorer do if you drag music files onto it. Do you get an audio CD? (honestly I'm asking cause I don't know) If so, what formats, does it handle ogg?

It asks you what you wanna do. It handles any format you want, as long as you have installed the codecs.

Now lets see you drag a bunch of video files into explorer(it's family stuff you recorded with your cellphone right? surely i'm not talking about piracy here) Do you get something that you can pop into your DVD player and have a reasonable expectation that it will actually play?

Works flawlessly. Again, it asks you what you want. You can choose to burn it like a data disc or a DVD.

Mixed mode discs? Finalized or un-finalized RWs?

Works, and works. All right from a simple explorer window. You know, windows gets a lot of flak for stupid UI but their UI is probably the most simple and easy to use.
