I am willing to pay for software that works on Linux. That only makes the entire stack look "better" to the world at large, if there are people that can supply quality products at reasonable prices. The whole thing is about having a lot of choice in what software you want to use. In this case, if I did a lot of burning, I'd be considering this real hard. I don't, though, so k3b is more than sufficient for my needs. That's my choice.

Heck, I might buy it anyway, just in case, y'know...

This is quite unexpected. I feel that Nero is one of the best cd burning apps on Windows. I still love k3b for cd burning, but if NeroLinux has the advanced dvd authoring as in the Windows version and I ever purchase a dvd burner, I might have to purchase Nero as well.

Bob D. thanks for the links and info.

K3b is also my choice but can you say it now has some serious competition. I prefer NERO over Roxio on any given day. I am also happy Nero has joint the linux community and I hope they keep it up too.

For the little burning that I do, K3B is all I need. Perhaps, this would energize the linux community to advance K3B further.

I do a lot of burning CDs and DVDs (data/audio/video) - and I will still continue to use K3B. I author my DVDs with qDVDauthor.

Why would I pay significantly more money for a product only marginally better. For $60 - $80US it's just not worth it. I make it a point to use Free Software instead -- support the community.

Just downloaded my copy as well. I had N6 for the XP, but now is even more reason to stay on the Linux side.

I noticed something funny from hrothgar's screenshot. "Parts of the GUI borrowed from GnomeToaster..." in the Nero splash screen. To see just how funny it is, check out the GnomeToaster screen shots:

and compare them to NeroLinux:

Nero Linux Released

For all owners of Nero 6 there is Nero for Linux released.
Fedora is mentioned as supported OS.
The Linux "add-on" is free as beer for holders of Nero 6, but is not free as speech (close sourced)
