Thing is, Nero on Linux is redundant. I’m all for them porting to Linux, but Nero hassles on Windows was one of the things that pushed me into Linux. I got so sick of ending up with bogus versions of Nero after I would misplace my OEM bundled version. The whole Windows warez scene is so damn lame, but it’s also the only conveneint way to replace driver software like Nero if you lose the disk that came with your machine. Anyway, it got so bad --no fault to Nero mind you, but to the whole zeitgeist of closed source-- that I started trying out Knoppix as a CD burning solution. Eventually, I just ditched Windows altogether for Knoppix. And as for CD/DVD burning, my experience has been that I get more reliable burns at faster speeds using K3B under Knoppix than I ever did with Nero on Windows using the same machine. So, while it’s nice to see them going this direction, they’re essentially redundant on the Linux side. Using my admittedly dated machines, I never saw a CD write at 24X without dipping into the buffer underrun cache with Nero on Windows. Using Knoppix, K3B and the 2.6 kernel I saw that happen every time and media that didn’t work with Nero under Windows suddenly became useable. The difference was so profound I just ditched Windows altogether.
