Nero for Linux!

Now I'm surprised.

A full featured version of Nero made for Linux, developed using glib/gtk. And they are available as both RPM and Debian packages.

It's really nice to see a "traditional" software house making its products for Linux.
This kind of action is important to make it a viable platform for regular end users, avoiding the Windows lock because their software (e.g., Autocad, 3D Studio, Photoshop, etc) is available only for Windows.

I agree that this is a good thing. We need more vendors to offer Linux versions of their products.

I just don't see how Nero can compete with projects like InfraRecorder, which provides the same features on Windows and Linux for FREE!
