A funny thing about regret is, that it's better to regret something you HAVE done, than it is to regret something you HAVEN'T done... oh yeah, and if you see your mom this weekend, be sure and tell her

Are u on drugs?

This proggy will eventually surpass Nero....use it and love it....Some bugs, but its in development so its all gooooddd!!!

The general opinion here on Neowin seems to be that several programs have already surpassed Nero in terms of useability. They are Ashampoo Burning Studio and Oront Burning Kit (probably a few others as well).
