Posted in Fun Stuff, Linux, Site News, Software Companies, Utilities


K3b 1.0 is a CD burning application. It consists of several rich features that is almost as good as that one can get from Nero Burning ROM (under Windows environment). K3b basically consists of three parts:

  1. The projects: Projects are created from the file menu and then filled with data to burn.
  2. The Tools: The tools menu offers different tools like CD copy or DVD formatting.
  3. Context sensitive media actions: When clicking on the Icon representing a CD/DVD drive K3b will present it’s contents and allow some further action. This is for example the way to rip audio CDs.

K3b has come a long way since the early days in 1998 when it started as a dummy project. The amazing feedback that this project has received from the open source community has propelled it to be what it is today.

K3b is available as a free source and can be downloaded from the link below. However, it might be easier to install K3b directly from your Linux distribution, to avoid some hassles of having to compile the source yourself.
