    In order to get Nero for Linux, you already have to have Nero for Windows.
    So then you would have to buy a useless software, in order to get software that is not even as good as k3b or IMO xcdroast.

    Awile back, someone did a review comparing k3b and nero for Linux.
    It seems he came out with the conclusion that they were equal.
    I couldn't disagree more.
    I have used Nero in Windows, I thought it was adequate for the job.
    In linux, k3b is more than adequate for my needs.
    K3B RULES!!!!!

    Nero is proprietary.

    Although I had some good moments with Nero in my Windows days, I wouldn't use it on Linux.

    Two reaons for this: first of all, it's commercial and not free/open source (and that is something in my opinion which conflicts with the essense of Linux) and secondly, why switch? K3B is great to use

    If I were to switch back to windows or use a dual boot for some reason, K3B is one app I'd be hard pressed to find a replacement for. In Windows I've tried lots of burning apps and none of them were as all-purpose or well made as K3B. I can't imagine any reason I'd pay for Nero. I wouldn't even use it if they gave it away...
