Brasero vs. K3b: Top 2 Linux Disc Burning Utilities

Filed under
Software

Although discs are slowly becoming obsolete and being replaced by simple transfers or downloads over the Internet, there are still plenty of reasons for burning or copying some discs. In some cases, your Internet connection may not be sufficient enough to download the files you want. For example, distributing CDs/DVDs of Linux distributions is easier than telling computer-illiterate people to visit a website, download a large file, and burn it to a disc themselves. In any case, you need a trusty burning utility to do the job, and Brasero and K3b are your top choices.

Brasero

I’ve covered Brasero in an article before and showed that it’s a highly capable burning utility. While functional, it does provide an extremely simple interface so that you only see certain functions in one view at a time. Brasero first asks what you’d like to do before it shows anything else.

uh, no.

this wasn't even a decent comparison. "This one is simple and this is has more stuff. That one is the winner."
