Commercial Software Loses Again

I’ve had disk images of Mandrake sitting on my desktop for a few weeks, waiting for me to get off my ass (proverbially and literally) to get some CDs. This has now happened, according to the exorbitant pricing of the UCD Students’ Union science shop of €1.50 per CD. I got home and eagerly (I had a slow day) launched into the process of burning these images. But I was thwarted by the dull ineptitude of Nero which utterly failed to behave in a sensible fashion. A quick Googling turned up a neat little program which does what I want, properly and without hassle. Score one more for the people writing software for free.
