Burn Discs over the network

With the deluge of cheap "netbooks" that came out a few years ago there are lots of people that have a mobile little computer but no way to burn discs.  Lifehacker pointed out a sweet little piece of software from Paragon called Net Burner.  I don't have much use for it being a huge nerd I've owned an external dvd multi-writer since near the beginning of time (don't ask how much it costs because I may be forced to cry if I remember).

Any how, I came across this because we have a few of the Lenovo Ideapad U260's here at work.  Think macbook air size running windows 7 on a core i5.  They are ridiculous and a nice piece of kit, go figure the executive staff around here love them.  With the "it doesn't matter that you ran it over with your car" warranty they are in Apple price territory but still damn nice except for the lack of burning drive.    This gives them the ability to burn to their desktop pc's drive.
