Nero Linux 4 - Still the Best Burning Tool for Linux?

,----[ Quote ]
| I was a little underwhelmed, and I actually 
| had to dig deep to see what was new. 
| According to the company, these are the 
| newest features:
|     * Nero Linux Express
|     * More advanced options for burning all
|       types of media
|     * ISOLINUX Bootable CD/DVD/BD Support
|     * BD Defect Management
|     * Enhanced Audio Format Support - AIFF 
|     and MusePack
| "That's it?" See what I mean? It's been 
| two-and-a-half years since Nero Linux 3, 
| and this is what's updated? Nero Linux 
| Express is admittedly a nice update, but 
| the rest are going to appeal to a rather 
| slim audience - especially the Blu-ray 
| defect feature (essentially a more robust 
| verification process). Well, the new 
| features might be slim, but let's take a 
| look at the application as it stands today 
| and see if it's worth your $20.


Shall we play a game?

| What is different about Warzone 2100 is the 
| way you can design your own war machines. 
| There are over 400 different technologies 
| [sic] to choose from. All previous games I 
| have seen only have a set of specific types 
| of unchanging selections. With Warzone you 
| can do research which provides new 
| abilities. You can then mix and match those 
| abilities to create your ultimate bone 
| crunching machines. That is enough to 
| provide just about unlimited variety for 
| endless digital massacre of those standing 
| in the way of your total domination. 


How to verify your files in Linux with MD5

,----[ Quote ]
| Everyone downloads files, whether it's an 
| ISO image of the latest Linux distribution, 
| TuxRadar podcast or a PDF tutorial.
| But despite this age of browser security, 
| anti-malware software and sophisticated 
| intrusion detection it's not always 
| possible to ensure that files haven't been 
| tampered with in transit (or even on the 
| server itself).

Quirky Wallpaper Series: Use Your LastFm Data As A Cool Wallpaper!

| Andrew over at webupd8 just posted about

| and share with the rest of us Ubuntu users! 



Nero Linux 4 Brings Powerful Burning, Copying, and Ripping Features to Linux Users

,----[ Quote ]
| Nero, creators of liquid media technology, announced
| today the release of Nero Linux 4, the latest version of
| the definitive burning application for the Linux
| operating system. This new offering also includes a new
| application, Nero Linux Express 4 â designed to meet the
| diverse needs of Linux users with a range of experience
| levels. Nero further expands their Linux portfolio with
| Nero Linux 4 Essentials, catering to the needs of their
| OEM partners.


Nero Linux 3.5 Allows Digital Media Content to Run Across Leading Platforms

,----[ Quote ]
| Nero Linux 3.5, available in mid-March, now also includes support and screen
| resolution enhancement for popular subnotebooks that are pre-loaded with the
| Linux operating system and have a very small screen resolution of 800 x 480
| pixels.



Parallels Virtuozzo Containers Offers 350 Templates

,----[ Quote ]
| The Templates Catalog includes a number of Linux distributions, such as
| CentOS, Debian, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and
| Ubuntu, as well as applications like MySQL, Spam Assassin, Wordpress and
| more.


Ubuntu users get easy access to Windows apps

,----[ Quote ]
| The company is making Parallels Workstation for Linux available to users via
| the operating system's built-in software update tool, using a feature called
| the Ubuntu Partner Repository. Parallels Workstation allows users to run
| Windows and Linux simultaneously on a single system.


Parallels makes nice with Red Flag and Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Flag and Parallels will offer a bundle tying Virtuozzo Containers 4.0
| together with Red Flag Linux Server Version 5.0. This gives Red Flag's
| customers a direct path to the container style of server virtualization,
| which centers on slicing a single copy of an operating system into multiple
| parts. Parallels released Version 4.0 of its flagship server software last
| month.


Ubuntu makes it easy for parallel virtualization

,----[ Quote ]
| Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, will announce on Feb. 6 that it's
| making Parallels Workstation for Linux available to users through the Ubuntu
| Partner Repository.


Nero Linux has been released today

,----[ Quote ]
| For all of you Linux lovers, the new update of Nero Linux 3 is available
| here, one day before Valentine's day . We fixed lots (really lots) of
| problems/bugs/misbehaviour for this release, so this is also an explanation
| why you have had to wait so long for the next demo version.


A new, improved Nero Linux 3

,----[ Quote ]
| Compared with K3b and GnomeBaker, Nero Linux 3 has it all, from creating data
| and music CD and DVDs to burning ISO images to writing on Blue-Ray and HD
| DVD -- and Nero can run on 64-bit machines. Its price is reasonable if you
| need to burn Blue-Ray and HD DVD disks and you don't wish to wait for K3b or
| GnomeBaker to implement support for those formats.


NeroLinux 3 [Review]

,----[ Quote ]
| I find NeroLinux 3.0 a vast improvement over 2.0, but Nero will
| find themselves having the need to add more features in order to
| grab a great deal of the Linux market-share. I've mentioned k3b
| many times, which is because it's a very complete solution that
| happens to be completely free.


NeroLinux Review

,----[ Quote ]
| This is a beta version of NeroLinux, therefore it is still under
| development and it might need some improvements and corrections.
| However, it is one of the few applications of its kind that
| manages to do its job in a perfectly nice and easy manner.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
