What I wonder is why only dd is in the current instructions.

Because 'dd' is the tool typically used for that sort of thing. 'cp'
and 'cat' in that context are at least a bit unusual. Besides, there
isn't really much gained by adding two alternatives ....

Well, one poster at the forum failed to create the stick by any of our published methods, and succeeded using 'cp'. I guess that he mistyped something, but I can't be sure.

The cp syntax is a tiny bit easier, perhaps... :-?
