For the moment I can think of only 2 programs I'd like to have native for Linux: ImgBurn and PicPick. I know there are alternatives but it's not the same. The first alternative doesn't reinitiate the media in the proper way before checking for errors and the second one can't autostart, no matter what I do to fix that.

ImgBurn, there is nothing special there.
Look at:
dd Bitcopy, whole disks, make .iso from disk, clone disk.
genisoimage Make iso from files, directories.
cat /dev/sr0 > image.iso Make .iso from disk.
mkisofs Make .iso
growisofs Burn .iso to disk, Burn disk from files
growisofs --iso-level 3 Larger that 4GB
dvdauthor Video DVD
Devede Video DVD
jpeg2yuv DVD Menu's
mpeg2enc
mplex
spumux
DVDisaster Recovery
ddrescue Recovery
ffmpeg Transcode mpeg2 into whatever you want, make video DVD.
mplayer Dump video DVD to .vob
mpv Dump video DVD to .vob
wodim Audio CD's
cdrecord Audio CD's
mplayer cdda://1 -ao pcm:file=file1.wav Get Audio track
ffmpeg -f libcdio -i /dev/sr0 file1.wav Get Audio track
cdparanoia Audio CD
cdrdao
sound-juicer
cddb_get
k3b
etc...

A few that I can think of off the top of my head. If you have a *nix box then you aren't hurting for optical disk support.

Each software listed above has a man page. And all the CLI ones are perfectly scriptable.

Just because you know nothing of ImgBurn doesn't mean there isn't anything special. When you select "verify data" in ImgBurn and it reaches that point, it first ejects the disk and then closes it. Thus it reinitializes the disk and increases the chance of finding any kind of errors, especially if the disk was flaud. None of the Linux native programs do that.

K3b has done that for as long as I can remember.

It doesn't do that anymore. That feature has been removed at some point.

Surely Windows programs only eject the disc first because of the different way that Windows handles Mount/Unmount?

Ableton. I've been using this program for years and for years I want it on Linux. It's on Mac and Windows so why not Linux? Apparently Bitwig is stealing the show on Linux right now but I've tried it and it's not the same. Also, it doesn't work so well on wine, and although a virtual machine works pretty well, it steals resources from the computer, which can be a problem.

Furthermore, I would like to see commercial games being independently ported to Linux without the help of Steam.

I'll second this; been using k3b for quite a while with verification always enabled and it's caught several bad disk media, (granted low quality el-cheapos).

Maybe TMI, but just to see if this still works for me.
k3b is a kde app but also works on an xfce desktop if kde is loaded on your system.

# First example, verify catches disk runout...just to show steps taken to make the iso from files.
# Burn DVDs (This made a 5.1 GB iso from three 1.7 GB files, too big, for example only, Next time won't select so many large files) Substitute a date_time for YYYYMMDD_HHMM
mkisofs -A "vid01, vid02, vid03" -J -allow-leading-dots -o vids_YYYYMMDD_hhmm.iso -r -T -V "DVD Movies YYYYMMDD_hhmm" -v /home/vids/Videos > mkiso_YYYYMMDD_hhmm.log 2> mkiso_YYYYMMDD_hhmm.err

K3b squawked when verifying after burn of resulting .iso file.
Using <k3b-18.12.2-x86_64-1alien> on Slackware but same k3b version should get the same results on any major current distro.

Example of settings for successful burn/verify for: kali-linux-2019.1a-amd64.iso
Select New Data Project
Select New Project
Select Project, Add Files
Select iso file
Select Burn Image Directly
Insert blank cd or dvd (ex.cd 650 MB or dvd 120 mins. 4.7 GB)
'Empty DVD-R Medium' should appear when media is recognized
Settings 'Verify written data'
Speed Auto
Writing mode Auto
3.3 GB burn took 13 mins 8 secs, took 8 mins 38 secs to verify, total 21 mins. 46 secs.

HDSDR

HDSDR is nice for SDR radio on windows, even includes a notch filter to cut annoying tones that you can put anywhere and widen or narrow it by scrolling the mouse wheel, and an adjustable passband that is adjustable on both high & low sides, for linux copy there is linrad but it is very primitive and hard to configure and use, HDSDR is much nicer and Linux deserves a good SDR app like that, GQRX is good but no notch filter, and CubicSDR is good but no notch filter either

It's not an area that I know anything about at all, but there is a more extensive list of programs on this site. https://www.rtl-sdr.com/big-list-rtl...rted-software/

Maybe one of those will suit you.
