But nautilus-burn does it for me, in a far nicer way. Third party applications like Brasero can always be installed if you need them specifically, but tightly integrated services like nautilus-burn add some real value to the desktop that "normal" applications can't provide. Or maybe you just meant that Brasero should become a part of the GNOME project in some way or another, there would be nothing wrong with that of course.

Nautilus burn needs, at least IMO, a user interface improvement. I've found many people that thinks that ubuntu can't burn cds because the nautilus burning interface is not...very easy to "find". They ask me what they should to to install a program that does it (and then i tell them to install K3B, which rocks, just to avoid them confusion)

It's right there in the places menu (one to the right of Applications on the desktop) and it has a very clear name. What would you suggest? I think some users are just so conditioned to the idea that CD burning is provided by a third party application that they don't even notice the integrated solution if it stares them right at their face. That cannot necessarily be fixed by the software, so why not tell them about it when they ask? Of course K3B is always a safe bet, but there is no reason to tell them to install K3B if all they want is to burn an image file.

I can't imagine how they could not see automatically opened window after inserting blank cd.

basically apps that are part of the release are no different then gtk apps you install yourself later, except the fact that they arent included in the release.

Yes, but in many people don't install apps, especially people in offices. Defaults matter in a distro.

For me, nautilus-burn really doesn't do it for me because you can't brn iso images - sure, I drop to command line and do it manually, but at the same time, I would have thought that along with packet based writing (treating a cd/dvd like any other storage), image writing would be quite important.

Simply right click an ISO image and select "Write to CD".

I don't know what Gnome release you're using, but here (2.16) when I double click on a iso file nautilus-cd-burner starts.

Packet writing is another sore point in linux.
This is so useful and convenient, I don't get why it's being so overlooked.

Anybody here brave enough to submit support for rw udf mounts to udev/volume manager?

The only thing I cannot understand is why isn't
mutisession support included.
I found nautilus burn to be most reliable gnome burner (probably it has interaction with gnome volume manager sorted out best) but lack of such basic functionality makes it useless for great part of users.
That's a shame, because having a one click burner would be very convenient.
