Gnome’s Brasero burning tool


Article from Issue 81/2007

Gnome’s integrated burning tool is fine for simple tasks, but if you need to do more than just back up a couple of documents on a CD, you might prefer a more powerful program like Brasero.

KDE users have an easy option – K3b [1] gives them a powerful suite of burning tools that integrates perfectly with the desktop. Although GnomeBaker [2] is a functional Gtk alternative, GnomeBaker has never achieved the popularity of the KDE application. This has led to users installing K3b on many a Gnome machine and to K3b’s undoubtedly justified reputation as the reference application among burning tools.

The launch of Brasero [3] marks a new competitor entering the market. Brasero version 0.5.2 lists an impressive feature set that helps facilitate burning on Gnome.
