I really like Linux, but I don't understand why there isn't more
cooperation while developing applications. There are almost a zillion
CD/DVD burners for *nix out there and almost none of them are actively
If the developers who created those -mostly half functional-
applications worked together on one killer burner, the chances of it
becoming unmaintained are way smaller and the quality of the
applications would also be of a higher standard...
The wait is for someone to fork my -until recently- favorite burner:
Graveman (maybe even rename it to Xfburn-ng ('ng' as in 'new
generation') or something)
