Nero AG has released the first beta version of the burning software NERO Linux 3. Nero Linux 3 has been redesigned to maximize ease of use, efficiency, and speed with next-generation disc formats.
What’s the new? The graphic interface has been updated and its now “richer” and more integrated with the Gnome Desktop. They used GTK2 graphical libraries to develop it. That makes it almost classentical to it’s Windows counterpart, Nero Burning ROM 7 Edition.
The most interesting update regards its new functions, its the first Linux application to offer the powerful Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD data burning support. Its necessary to note that the HD DVD is really something new given that at this moment the Open Source Initiative (OSI) offers an incomplete support for High Definition DVD standard. Nero Linux 3 is available in RPM for Red Hat, Fedora Core e Mandriva and DEB for Debian GNU/Linux and Debian based distros like Ubuntu and variants.
Nero Linux 3 for Linux can be downloaded for trial from the Nero website. The license costs € 19.99.
