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.
