Question Good cd burning software


Question for all you fanatic cd burners out there; what do you consider to be a good program?
Reason I am asking is that I gave the last remaining MS-OS installation the good old boot last weekend and need to find the linux counterparts of some software I used on my W2K installation. Because Nero hasn't been ported to linux (yet?), I am looking for good cd burn software. It needs to be able to burn audio, data, (s)VCD and images (mostly iso or bin). I know opinions on software are generally somewhat subjective, but I am hoping you guys (and girls) can give me an idea of what's good and what's not.

Thanks in advance!

K3b, it does basically all Nero does, but does not cost anything:

An useful list of replacements of programs for Linux/Windows, can be found here:

Thanks for the replies. Emerging K3b as we speak. Looks like it can do everything Nero 5.8 can and more.

Megaman X thanks for the 'migration' link. That will help me speed things up (by not having to search long and hard for replacement software)
