A changing of the guard
For the past several years, ahead's Nero had been an essential of both my personal and corporate toolboxes.
There is a new and highly recommended replacement: CyberLink's DVDSuite 6 Ultimate.
Like Nero, CyberLink's DVDSuite is a suite of consumer-class digital media software. However, unlike it, DVDSuite is a comprehensive and integrated suite of programs that is easy to use and become proficient in within a very short period.
