I could really give a rat's ass which one is "better". You guys don't seem to grasp this reality: People aren't going to move to Linux simply because you think something else is superior. There are too many tangible (and intangible) costs associated with moving from one platform to another (software investments, training, existing data, software availability, yadda, yadda, yadda)

Well, with kde4 being released for windows you could use apps like k3b without switching platforms. If k3b on windows was better than nero I don't see why you wouldn't consider using it.

Anyway while it's true that moving to a different platform implies certain costs, those are for the most part short-term costs that might (or not) be outweighted by the mid and long-term savings.
