With Debian, upon which Ubuntu is based, you can simply dd the iso file to a USB stick in order to create a USB installer. With Ubuntu, you must use the magical software creator. This is an arduous requirement because it makes it hard to install Ubuntu on new hardware which might not have an optical drive if you don't already have a machine running Ubuntu.
