I don't agree. Who do you think Ahead are targeting? Current Linux
users? Nope, I don't think so... by offering it for free for users
with a full version of Nero for Windows means they are targeting their
customers who are currently Windows users.
What does Nero for Linux offer? A consistent and familiar interface for
people who may be currently using Windows. It also does something to
promote Linux as a viable option, because if customers of Ahead suddenly
see that their are offering a Linux version it perks interest in Linux
and makes people perhaps look again at the feasibility of a Linux desktop.
Saying that there is no need for Ahead to have released a Linux version
of Nero is stupid. Its like saying we only need one distribution of
Linux. There are mutiple distributions because they all do things a bit
different from another. Its called choice.
