I have been trying to dump windows for a while. But, I have been spoiled by the Nero suite of applications. I have purchased and installed NeroLinux, but it is only a Linux version of Nero Burning ROM.
I really like the DVD authoring application in WinNero, and was hanging on to windows because of that. I recently have been trying out 'Q' DVD-Author. It is a GUI for the Linux dvdauthor application. It is new, and still rather "green", but I am able to get good DVD's with custom menus with it. It is the custom menus that I really like. I never was able to do that with WinNero.
I just installed the Linux OS 64Studio on my multimedia PC. It is meant to be a Linux recording studio, base on Debian. I have installed 'Q' DVD-Author andgLabels (a Linux label making program), and plan on installing NeroLinux.
Those programs seem to be what I needed to finally free myself from windows. I don't want to start a OS war, because I think WinXP is a fine OS. I just don't ever want to use Vista! :eek:
