Nero for Linux
hide | show
While writing my last post about disk burning in Gnome, I expressed some of my expectations about the development of cd burning applications, but the last thing I expected was a Linux port of the famous Nero CD burning suite Nero, which is exactly what happened.

Just to disapoint you after this good news:
No, it's not free software (You need a Nero 6.5 Licence Key)
No, it's not GTK2, it GTK1 (based on GnomeToaster from what I've heard)
No, it does not have all the features of its Windows equivalent

Be sure to check out their website and the screenshot gallery though.

I didn't test the software myself, but I'll definitely keep track of it and inform you about its development.

It's really great for us linux users to have Nero make a linux version. Now we only have to hope it will be made GTK2 quickly ;)

Yes, GTK2 would be nice but VCD/SVCD creation is also missing. The Windows Nero has loads more of features, too much for a burning program in my opinion, but some are quite useful.
