A stake through Nero's heart!

I've just removed Nero, the Windows CD/DVD copier, from my computer - the "update" that rolled out today seemed to install loads of unwanted media programs and messed up a lot of file associations. Since it's been of little use recently anyway - the cheaper version of recent years is seriously crippled - I've decided to use a program called img burn instead - it seems to do what I want, including things like overburning onto 800mb CDs which Nero will no longer do, and it's donationware - free to use, donate if you like it, no nag screens etc. So far I'm very pleased with it.

It's a shame because Nero used to be a very good program - but now it's just bloatware, huge and so busy trying to sell you its pro version that it's alienating a lot of customers.
