I'll get a pirated copy. LOL. Looks like K3B is the favorite among Linux choices. I've tried a few and had problems/bugs with a couple, but can't remember any problems ...

    I've used a lot of CD writing apps, XCDRoast, Nero, KIIIB, etc. and I must say the absolute best I've ever used is KIIIB. When Windows died on me, one of the applications I thought I'd miss was Nero (I got it for free when I bought an extra CD writer), since I found KIIIB I havn't thought about it once. Open Source software has become so good lately that proprietary software is starting to look lackluster.

    I think this cloud may have a silver lining. While I have no intention of using Nero for Linux (although, I don't like k3b either - I use GraveMan!) this is showing proprietay developer interest in Linux, which could lead to bigger and better things such as:
    better game support (read: more games)
    better hard-ware support that requires a proprietary driver (ATi)
    etc...

    Why would that be?
    Nero is just another big fat corp. that squeeses every $ out of people who don't know anything about computing.

    So why would it lead to better game support.
    If i would want to play games i'll get me a xbox

    This topic was discussed to death a while back.

    No, I will not be using Nero instead of K3b. It's not free (price or open-source), I can't get a copy of Nero for Linux anyway since I didn't buy Nero for Windows, and K3b does exactly what I need it to do and more.

    Yes, let's not get into that. Besides, even if I did own a copy of Nero for Windows that would allow me a free download of Nero for Linux (which last time I checked runs aroun $99USD), it wouldn't do anything that K3b doesn't already do for free.

    It's not free software (as defined by the FSF).
    uke:

    So I think I'll just stick to cdrecord and XCDRoast.
