Nero Burning ROM Alternatives

    Ah, the good old days when the hottest thing on the block was a freshly burned CD-ROM with some MP3s on it. Software to make that happen, such as Nero Burning ROM, was the coolest software on the planet. Well, the world has changed.

    Newer versions of Nero has dubious installation prompts for bundleware and Nero is simply not the best anymore. Try some open source alternatives that can be inspected and guaranteed for the safety of both your computer and your sanity.

    Another major flaw of Nero is that it's only available on Windows, so if you are looking for an alternative for Linux, Mac, or other platforms, we have you covered, of course!
