Nero Linux

March 12th, 2005

The Nero people have launched a Linux version of their popular CD/DVD burning software.

While they are certainly best in class on Windows, I don’t see any reason for K3b users to switch to this because there’s nothing new by way of functionality. Maybe GNOME users who don’t want to install the kde-base libraries just to run K3b would go for it? Then again, it’s an ugly GTK1 app which no one would want to be seen running on their desktops in 2005. ;-)

Overall, I am happy with this announcement ‘cos more software for my platform of choice is always a good thing.
