Holy cow this app has become nothing but bloatware. Upon starting the install for Nero8 the installer has the audacity to ask if I want to install the Ask Jeeves toolbar? WTF NERO? The custom install has me check-marking a dozen or more optional apps and features? Give me a break.
All I want to do is burn cds and dvds!
So, my question is: what are the good, honest, slim products out there which allow you to burn CDs and DVDs with no fuss and don't require hundreds of megabytes of storage to do it. I prefer GNU products, but have no problems about quality, no-nonsense commercial products either. What are the cool kids using*?
My environment is Windows XP and Server 2003. My burners are dual layer DVD-+RW*!@#@#litebrite-waka-waka models from Lite-On. Completely generic, middle of the road, fine working drives.
*Please don't tell me just to mount my images, I already do that for most things, but I live and work in an environment where I occasionally need to burn CD and DVD images.
