Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Engineers at Sun are working on a 'small' version of Solaris 10. "I've got a modified Solaris miniroot with ZFS functionality which takes up about 60 MB (the compressed image, which GRUB uses, is less than 30MB). Solaris boots entirely into RAM. From poweron to full functionality, it takes about 45 seconds to boot on a very modest 1GHz Cyrix Mini ITX motherboard."

This is fud and you know it.

cdrecord does not need all of those options specified!

At most:

# cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc file.iso

How does Solaris distinguish which CD-RW drive to use if you have more than one? You'd have to tell it a device somehow.

cdrw -l will show you all the writable CD/DVD devices.

If you need to specify a specific one then use the -d flag which takes as a argument the alias name from -l output.

Latest Solaris Express (Sun's OpenSolaris distribution) also come with cdrecord.

In my opinion the fact that you have to specify a device at all, particularly for the case were there is only one device, is poor user interface design.

If you only have one burner, can't you just stick a

alias cdrw='cdrecord -v dev=/dev/hdc -driveropts=burnfree'

in your .profile?

Please stop using that word (fud). I don't think it means what you think it means.
