Angry Nero for Linux


"NeroLINUX is FREE of charge if you register"

This is abusing of the word "FREE"... it's NOT free... I really hate companies that do that.

When I googled for a good DVD burner program for FC3, this stupid link appeared, a link to neroLinux. I never going to like Ahead anymore!

To clarify it is free but only if you have a valid nero licence.

what they are saying is if you already OWN a copy of Nero, then they will give you a linux vs for free IF you can prove that you own the windows vs already.

nothing wrong wtih that if you ask me. i personally see no need to use Nero in linux when you have programs like cdrecord and k3b that do everything that nero does and better plus they are free as in free bier.

Like others, I'd recommend k3b. It is a very good, easy-to-use program.

Nero versus K3B

I have just recently started using K3B and would say it is definately better than Nero. Nero is good but like so much Windows stuff it is overly complicated.

Harsh;
These questions belong in the Newbie forum--not as responses to an existing thread. I hope you see this---I was going to send you e-mail, but you have not enabled that

A while back I found out that the overly-complex Windows Nero interface can be replaced with something as simple as this "copy CD" example on my box:
Code:
dd if=/dev/hda bs=2048 conv=notrunc | cdrecord -dev=/dev/hdb -v -
... and I've never looked back. If I feel like a GUI, I'll use K3B. I've always felt that the Nero interface was horribly busy looking, counter-intuitive, and didn't even "feel" like a Windows program in the first place. Powerful program, but with an interface that only a truely dedicated fan could love.
