    Agreed. I must admit I found it pretty cool to see Tux on the retail box of UT2004. (You also got a Linux installer with UT2003, but it was "hidden" on the third disc.) I imagine that had the Linux client been available for Doom 3 at the time of the Win32 launch, they would have included it. Id was one of the first companies to offer Linux-only versions of their products (Quake 1-3), so it's just a matter of time. John Carmack (lead hacker at Id) is Linux-friendly.

    Sad thing is, I prefer K3B to Nero anyway.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    K3B is the best and I don't think I'll change it.

    Jen,
    I was thinking this quote ment you couldn't do that:

    Please note: This offer is not for OEM or Demo version users.
    OEM users can Upgrade Now for a special discount offer.
    Are the free versions OEM or no?

    I would wager a guess that 80-90% of people who use Nero had it bundled in with a burner or computer they bought, meaning they're OEM. (I have 2 IIRC) Although I sort of understand the rationale behind this, I still think it's pretty cheap to make someone buy a product twice for an operating system they don't have just to get the product for the operating system they WANT.

    I disagree...I would say it's pretty expensive

    Haha. Ok. Allow me to rephrase that. "I still think it's pretty shady to make someone buy a product twice for an operating system they don't have just to get the product for the operating system they WANT."
