I guess of those in the poll, ffmpeg.
But brasero is a very good cd/dvd burner.

IMO, CD/DVD burners shouldn't be there (sep poll is needed).

Such tools as rippers, encoders, tag editors, splitters should be there. I voted for ffmpeg but I think flac encoder should be an option too.

Nautilus CD Burner

I've enjoyed the simplicity of burning CD's from Nautilus; I haven't needed to use any other burner for a long time now.

Thumbs up

dificil, muy dificil. K3b ha solucionado siempre el problema del quemado en linux, de una manera automatizada y amigable. Sin embargo, digikam logro que me alejara casí totalmente del uso de window$ cuando reconocio mi cámara digital... así que va por digikam......;¬)

A suggestion

K9Copy is an excellent multimedia utility, worthy of inclusion in the list of candidates.

I voted for F-Spot. The latest versions 0.4.* are hugely better than the 0.3.* versions. The tagging and searching is brilliant, it integrates absolutely beautifully with Gimp, UFRaw and other external tools such as Photo Grid Print, PhotoPrint, Evolution, Gthumb and so on and has a good set of export tools (flickr, picasaweb, facebook etc) and new tools for RAW+JPEG merging. The metadata browsing, tagging and search is so good that I no longer feel I'm missing out on anything compared with all those "pro" workflow tools available on the dark side. But I don't think it belongs in the same category as K3b or acidrip, it should be in with the graphics tools, not multimedia. You can't play music or movies with F-Spot, only manage/edit photos.

Would soundjuicer fit here?

Beat grip by far - it seems to encode a cd to ogg format as fast as it can read it. (rather than first ripping and then encoding).
