    Did you used nero for Linux?


    I think they should sell Nero on Ubuntu Software Center.

      Still best for blu-rays

      This is unfortunate, nero4linux is still THE best option for blu-ray writing. I've had multiple problems with dvd+rw-tools and k3b when writing blu-ray disks, and none with nero. I did report most of these bugs to developers of both open source programs, and they still haven't been fixed for 2 years now. k3b really seems to be in "fix some critical bugs only, nothing more" development stage, almost abandoned.

        I have to agree with the general sentiment. Nero Linux was just too late.
        When I switched over to linux K3B was still in its infancy (did it exist at all?), so I missed Nero very much --- I had used Nero since the windows 98 version, when it replaced the god awful "Easy CD Creator".

        But then K3B kept improving, and by the time Nero Linux came out, it was too late, most users had what they needed in K3B (and later brasero), and Nero linux did not have all of the features (even the burning related ones) from its big brother, so nobody was very interested.

        If the open-source community wants an application like yours, and you refuse to port it, well, be on the lookout because soon it might not be needed at all anymore.

          There was Nero for Linux?

          Anyway, I know that the linux version was different, but on windows it started as a really nice cd-burning tool and ended up trying to be a mini operating system.

            On Linux, Nero it is still the "really nice cd-burning tool"

              I think it is true.

              For example:

              k3b and bluray burning

              "I had the same problem. Downloaded Nero Linux and problem solved. Works very well. Only $20 to buy after the trial is up."

                  I also found Nero Linux to be the only reliable solution to Blu-Ray burning and I did pay the $20 registration.

                    K3B works perfectly in my experience. I have used it for many years and I never have had a "broken" CD or DVD disk.

                    I simply don't believe you.

                      I don't use Windows and Wine on Linux/OS X.

                        imgburn adds workarounds for wine if needed, you should read the changelogs. the dev really cares about linux this way. must be too hard to install wine on your box, even the oldest version were able to run it. it broke once, then i leaned how to bisect with git. therefore i can only remember 1 broken wine release for imgburn.

                          However I don't care for Wine and applications for Windows.

                              And when a game uses libwine it is fine? You really should be more openminded, wine devs do a great work - and when app devs even care that it runs fine with it even better. It's not that you have to buy a win licence to use wine...

                                No.

                                They do a great work for Windows users, but not for me.

                                Where are informations about games for Linux?

                                For example:

                                http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...ation&iId=1898

                                http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...ation&iId=8427

                                I don't want buy or use aplications for Windows.
