Nero Burning Suite is available for Linux:


In addition to so called "consistency" being irrelevant, this is
an example of:


[quote] Ad hominem troll

Ad hominem troll at its simplest, will attack people personally,
rather than the merits of their statements or methodologies.

The ad hominem troll often has already lost a rational argument
about a topic, and thus its goal is to change the argument from
being about a topic, to being about the people opposed to the
troll (which could mean any/all rational person(s) in the
discussion), in the hopes of both discrediting people's ideas
indirectly by discrediting the people, and engendering an
emotional reaction from the people by attacking their egos /
self-image. The "getting a reaction out of" goal is common to
most troll types. [/quote]

This is a continuation of the ad hominem attack, see above.

Hadron uses a very common trolling technique. Rather than
participate in
the discussion, attempts to deflect the issues by flinging
insulting retorts, such as homophobic name calling and referring
to a poster's expressions as "whines". In his insulting, extolls
a competing operating system by calling it a market leader. This
confirms he is here to troll.

He misrepresents the truth, showing that he truly is not an
advocate, referring to Linux as crap. Yet 10 years ago, Linux was
a complete and suitable desktop product. As you show in the
following explanations regarding Microsoft concerns expressed
through the Halloween papers.
