It's like comparing staroffice to MS office. you can talk the whole day long, but it's clear that one is crap and the other is good. both products are actually not comparable, because easycd is intended for multimedia, while nero for professional burning, but even if you compare easycd with winoncd, winoncd is the clear winner. easycd loses against all competitors in a direct comparison, first, because it likes to kill the system (remember all those posts: "my cdrom drives disappeared after installing easycd creator!"), second, because you can hardly do anything with the programme and it's less userfriendly than winoncd.
