Grrr.. sorry bout' that long blank post!
Some moderator please delete it... i did by mistake...!
As for nero3.. that rocks..finally a software 2 burn blu-ray!

Hmmm... I'm going to try this out for a few days to see if it can match the burn speed of the windows version.

If it does that I'm buying it.

$25...where the **** is that offer on the windows version? Am I missing it (A Nero-only Windows version)?

It's only $25 because the linux version is no where as nice as the Windows version. The interface is horrible and the fonts are worse. Even you have Windows fonts installed on the system it will still look horrible and almost unreadable.

What are you talking about? From Nero3 it looks exactly the same as other applications, same font, theme, ... You must be talking about Nero2.

Ha ha...Why i need to use Linux if i need to *purchase* a burner software? Shouldnt ALL softwares for linux shouldnt be free or wat?

No, it shouldn't.

There's room for both free software and non-free software (and that's both in licenses as in cost ).

And there are free alternatives to Nero on Linux.

Linux as in OS is free, other software is same as with Windows/OSX: some if free, some you have to pay for. Only with linux, there is way bigger share of free than commercial software available. We all know good software costs (Photoshop, etc.) but in the end, linux will save you some money (if you always buy the software you use, of course). But that's another story.
Nero3 otherwise is a great thing for linux and a quality product, having used the beta few times myself, it really works well and they finally switched to gtk2.

The more utilities made for *nix, the more chance *nix will have a fighting chance with Windows.

Small drips can add up. Computers are only useful if there's utilities and peripherals allow it. Many computers these days are used to make copies of DVD movies and such. This utilities is just one apps that is a plus for the *nix users. I say over 90% (don't shoot me cos of my estimation) of new computer users bought their computer because they want to backup movie DVDs and song CDs. And for that, having such a software company making this small footprint can open more choices for the consumers.

There aren't that many pirates in the world. And of those who backup legit, it's not likely the 'sole' reason they buy a computer.
