    Touted as one of the most prominent burning suite for Windows, Nero didn't stand back when Linux is concerned either. Following their trend of providing unblemisshed Burning suite for Linux, Nero recently updated their Linux offering and introduced a new version tagged as Nero 4.

    The newer version improves overall integration and offers more pronounced support for Linux and optical drives and media handling. Nero Linux 4 for the first time introduce the Express wizard for Linux.

    With the inclusion of the express wizard Nero ease the burning application in Linux giving tougher competition to the free and open source counterpart in Linux. The burning quality of other players are far cry to that of Nero Linux with incomplete burning integration and improper UDF implementation.

    Nero chips in and provides a strong and stable burning suite available for decent price tag. With nero loaded in the system one can have peace of mind and can be assured that there won't be Disc squander .

    The new version comes with beautiful startup splash, however this only works when compiz is triggered. I have created a short video of the same. Unfortunately due to crap ATI drivers the video recording becomes a bit sluggish, while the performance will be very fast in real world usage.

    it may be good, but it defeats the whole point of FOSS!

    until Nero releases a "free" version for Linux, I am sticking with K3b

    This being the "express" version I believe there are some limitations, anyone can post them?

    Why should anyone buy a "quality linux OS/product" when there are many free quality linux (Ubuntu, Fedora etc) OS/products available ?

    Doesn't make sense!!

    with $19.9 for new version and $10.00 for Upgrade. Its pretty cheap. so I see the product is mainly targetting the OEM, they buy in bulk, which would bring prices further down.

    So you would surely see Nero Linux 4 on most Linux powered netbooks and many manufucters who ship their hardware with Linux OS would be interested in this. so still its gonna be free for end users
