My system uses Brasero; I believe nautilus also has a program bult-in.
And I could not agree with you more on KDE; although I will always give it (KDE) and it's programs (K---) a chance. Personally, I will use what the users say is best, because that what I am.
I actually have never tried K3b, but it receives amazingly high praises from it's users, and I am hard-pressed to try it. But for now I have never had a problem with Brasero or Infrarecorder.
As for "like Windows," pixellany is very correct. Linux isn't Windows; however if you're willing to adapt a little bit, you'll begin to use Windows and ask why it can't be "like Linux?"
And acid is not good for you, lol.
Hope you get your problem solved.
