I love k3b for CD/DVD burning and I love digiKam for photo management.

Seeing as I manage my photos more regularly than I burn CD/DVD's I voted for digiKam.

Doesn't mean I love k3b any less though.

Well, when it comes to me, I only know and use K3b, as it is the only option available here for voting, which I have installed on my system. That's probably because it's attached to my Mandriva 2007 Anyway, K3b rocks! I like it much more than Nero or other CD/DVD-burning software. So my choice is clear - K3b 4 life

Mythtv, just set it up this year, but everything is so awesome.

Their music player could add some things though(Lyrics?Music outside the main Window?Album Art?)

K3B is a beautiful thing. Does exactly what it's supposed to do. For me it blows the others away. Except for MythTv. When I first installed it, I just wanted to watch TV. Add in the dvr, and I was sold.

I voted for MythTV of course. But faced with cd burning apps in widespread use, this wonderful multimedia system won't be the winner.

Where is (***insert name of your favorite app here***) !!!!

Sorry, had to do it again. I adore MythTV. I adore gtkpod. Where is DVD::RIP?? Jorn Reder would be bawling. I love that app so much it hurts. You can cluster your machines to transcode an 8gig dvd into a 2pass 1 gig xvid4 (awesome quality) in like, 25 mins. OMG.!

I feel like it's the epitome of dvd ripping-transcoding apps on ANY platform.

I vote MythTV in the absence of DVD::RIP

Wow, didn't know that. Yep, I know, this is described in TFM I had heard about DVD::RIP but not about this great feature! Thanks for mentioning this.
