A friend of mine just told me about this, that Ahead released a Linux Client of their famous burning software. Alright Linux has some really good ones! like k3b, cdrecord....that' all you need basically but I find it a very good step into the right direction that famous software companies care about linux users! And release their stuff for Linux as well! :D

Cool to see they're not behind the times, but...
Too bad it's only a binary and you have to register a copy of nero to download it.

Nero is one of the few programs i'd pay for. Other one is Photoshop :)
Anyone tested it yet ?

I think it's nice that a company like ahead ported a software like nero to linux, but I don't think I will buy the windows version to get a linux version without support :?

So, if anyone has Nero 6 for windows, please try it and report :wink:

Just out of curiosity, what can Nero do that I wouldn't be able to do with a bog-standard CD burning program like the one built in to Nautilus? I've never understood the appeal of that program. I can burn CDs with data or audio in pretty much every program, what's so special about Nero?

It was/is one of the best CD burning software available for Windows.

And...

Nuts, I have a valid version of Nero, but it came with my CD writer thus no serial number. :(

Not in this country.
On the back of the white sleeve the software comes in, it says;
ATTENTION! DO NOT DISCARD
(yes, in bold and capitals).

Serial number in a box at the bottom. Looks like dot matrix printer - fades, so I always write over any I have.

As I was copying discs in XP as I read this thread, I feel almost honour-bound to download this Linux binary and try it out.
Will report back later.

EDIT: Ah, damn. Just looked at the page;

Meh, when I used it to back up a bunch of dvd's, it borked about half of them. I did much better after I found something else to burn with.

It's also just kinda weird to use imo, though that's what I use to burn cd's in windows.

I have to admit that I don't miss nero at all in linux, and would never use the linux version. Kb3 is fine imo.

Keeping in mind that I actually bought Nero for Windows....

I'd much rather see K3B for Windows than Nero for Linux :D.

Cheers,

But why? What made it the best? I haven't really used it, but it seems that every feature that I can think of which would be useful in a CD-burning program has already been implemented in countless others. What did Nero have that the rest of the crop lacked?

IIRC, it sucked less than the others, until version 6... IMHO, burnatonce is the best for Win!

Your kidding right? You are comparing Nero to nautilus cd burner? Thats hilarious.

Seriously, I dont think the biggest issue is what Nero can do over other burning software already available on Linux, I think the big issue is that Linux is finally getting some support from proprietary developers. Its all gotta start somewhere and hopefully Ahead will push other companies towards Linux and who knows, perhaps one day in the future, Adobe Photoshop will run in all its native glory on Gentoo.

This is exactly what Linux needs...some testing of the waters from software manufacturers in hopes of bringing more 3rd party software to its doors.

GTK2 would have been nice...

Therein lies the problem. GNU/Linux has no need for proprietary software.

Perhaps one day in the future Adobe and other propietary software developers will see that by making their software Free will increase the quality and utility of their software; and they wouid instead focus on making their profits on things like support contracts and classes to _use_ the software efffectively.

It uses more system resources and has fancy graphics. This makes it 'better'.

I can't believe there's people supporting Nero here over the native GPL'd linux utilities. I can write a command line alias to burn any sort of disk (movie, data, hybrid, udf, iso, cd, dvd, whatever) from a bash shell. I don't have to load a 40MB app into RAM (or however big nero is) just for some fancy buttons. I won't comment on k3b, which, although a beautiful solution, is a pig (as most KDE apps are, I find). When is someone going to take XCDRoast to the next level and build in all the functionality that cdrecord and growisofs have? IIRC, xcdroast only takes like 15MB of RAM.

I won't get into photoshop, but I'd use the gimp 2.0 any day over that overpriced bloatfest.

I have to laugh because even though I agree with you, I'm emerging k3b right now on a new system.

I wasn't sure I wanted to put it on, but it's at least a convenient pig to have around, lol. One thing that's annoying is how it blunders around trying to exit -- I guess it's used to being plugged into the rest of kde, which on my system just isn't there.

I'd definitely prefer a leaner app with the same functionality.

That wins the award for probably the most ignorant and zealot stanced comment I have heard on these forums. Photoshop labelled as bloatware...wow. I think the term bloat is thrown around a little too much from people who have no idea what it means. I dont think all programs can take up 9MB of RAM...

UT2004 completely sucks...it doesnt even work well on my 128MB video card and my 450PII...I would take nibbles over that overpriced bloatware for sure...

I meant bloat as in it comes with a bunch of stuff I don't need. With the gimp, I can add just the plugins I need and not have to wait for 200 filters I don't use to load when I launch the app. Sorry for being ignorant. Glad to be zealous.

BTW, I like UT2003 just as much as UT2004. As far as I am concerned, UT2004 is functionally just an addon. However, the system requirements are more to acheive the same framerates. So yes, I consider UT2004 to be bloated also :! Maybe that's just because my perspective is skewed due to owning a radeon graphics card.
