Remember Nero Burning ROM
? Of course you do, it's that beautiful application for Windows which helps you burn your everyday CDs and DVDs. Well, on Linux systems, Nero Burning ROM (NeroLinux) is not that popular because there are many other native CD/DVD burning applications out there, like the award winning K3b, which recently released version 1.0
, or GnomeBaker, Brasero and many others, and because it's not free software. NeroLinux
is the Linux version of the award winning Nero Burning ROM for Windows systems. It is a comprehensive, yet flexible application, which now supports all important functions of Nero Burning ROM on Linux systems. But that's not all, because this year at CeBIT (Centre of Bureau and Information Technology), the world's largest computer expo held each spring on Hanover, Germany, Nero unveiled the upcoming NeroLinux 3.
The new version of NeroLinux will bring amazing features like Blu-Ray and HD DVD data recording support, but also an improved GUI (graphical user interface) that is similar with the one from Nero Burning ROM 7 edition: "Nero has long recognized the importance of including the Linux community in our broad user base" [...] "By ensuring that the functionalities of our most popular application are available to users of the Linux operating systems, we are also ensuring that Nero's cutting-edge burning technology is enjoyed by users all over the world."
- said Udo Eberlein, Chief Operating Officer, Nero AG.
Other good news is that NeroLinux 3 will come with support for 64-bit systems, as well as Unicode support for many languages. First beta of NeroLinux 3 will arrive by the end of March 2007 and Nero's OEM partners will be able to bundle the application starting with May 2007. This will offer a unique solution to the growing Linux community and there will be many distributions supported, like Red Hat, Ubuntu, Suse, Fedora, Lispire or Mandriva.About Nero
