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).
