I just recently went through all of them testing to see what was easiest to 
use with all the users here (Melvin Graphics)

K3b was hardest for them to figure out.
what I've been using personally for years XCDroast confused some (but it is 
still a favourite of mine) and I believe is still in the repositories, at 
least it was in hoary when I installed it !
gnomebaker was the simplest of the gui tools that comes in Ubuntu 
We also tried the commercial Nerolinux which everbody seemed to like best, 
most of these people are used to using Neroexpress on win32 though so it's 
somewhat familiar.

FWIW I still like XCDroast ...it doesn't need Gnome OR QT I'm using it on an 
Xubuntu notebook

IIRC it needs GTK and gtkpixbuff libraries ... I used to use it with a 
minimal xfree86 setup on OS/2 before migrating.

OH BTW the help for XCDRoast won't come up in the Gnome help browser on 
Ubuntu....that's because it's not html it's a pdf but it DOES get installed.
