Nero for Linux

By Derek Sooman on March 17, 2005, 12:15 PM
This has got me so excited that I can barely type straight - a version of Nero for Linux! Yes, especially for Linux! Stop rubbing your eyes, its true!

NERO SAID it has introduced Nero Linux, which lets you burn your CDs and DVDs.

The programme is free for Nero 6 full version users.

The software supports burning data and disk images to CDs, DVDs, bootable disks, audio CDs with CD text, mixed mode CDs, CD Extra, multisession CD/DVDs and double layer DVDs, said Nero.

Versions of the software are available as RPM files or DEB packages, with supported Linux distributions including SuSE, Red Hat, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Debian GNU/Linux 3.0, and of course my favourite Fedora Core.

100% not impressiveK3B, a frontend for cdrtools/dvdrtools/etc, has way more features, looks better, has more options and, of course, is freeIt is QT based, so gnome users probably don't care for it much

I've never tried K3B, I must give it a go.

I think it is a good thing that Nero is providing software to linux now, but I think this is a very half-hearted effort. Nero for windows is leagues better. I hope that Nero will catch up to the better linux software. Then again, I wouldn't pay for it, so game over.

I am a big fan of K3B as well, but I am still very happy to see that I can use Nero in Linux.
