The "free burning software" market seems to die out slowly.

On Windows, I currently use cdrtools (like InfraRecorder without the GUI clutter). Probably this is one of the very few future-safe options.

With max. 2 accounts? That's not "free" for a typical "power user", I guess. But hey, some *ix clients can only handle one...

eM Client is not free.

Mods forget to edit quotes. Hmm.

Above list is incomplete, given that (obviously) a couple of BSDs and derivatives work as a host too.

*YAWN*... (now that's something of substance.)

I told ewemoa where to look by giving one of the possible answers to the question asked initially. If that's not enough, ewemoa might come back to it, right?
6  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Relatively Minimal Host OS for VirtualBox Use on: March 09, 2014, 01:51:51 PM
Yep, the host software and the guest software. Now how does this invalidate my thesis?

(Interestingly, you emphasize a different part every time.)

and the VirtualBox Guest Additions[2] with the operating system.

Guest Additions are installed on the hosted system.

Either way, I'm more familiar with using BSD to create bespoke servers rather than VM hosts, so I'll defer to you to provide instructions or links on how to do it under OpenBSD. 

RTFM...  cheesy

Your quote is related to using PC-BSD as a guest system.

OpenBSD works as a host (or doesn't, depending on who you ask). - PC-BSD is not exactly "light on resources".
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Relatively Minimal Host OS for VirtualBox Use on: March 09, 2014, 10:13:31 AM
easy to install (so recognizes hardware well) *NIX -- though light on resources

Not having read the rest of the thread:

OpenBSD.

Much less than 100 MB RAM usage on my "hey, let's test OpenBSD" machine (latest 5.5-CURRENT with default X installation), fast and clean base system installation. It even found my Radeon card immediately.

Still giant. :/
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Directory Opus 11 Released! on: March 04, 2014, 11:36:22 AM
I never saw a screenshot without giant "menu" toolbars...  huh
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Directory Opus 11 Released! on: March 04, 2014, 10:13:36 AM
For a detailed list of changes, please see the What's New page.

"This content is not shown because JavaScript is disabled"  mad ... well, can I finally shrinken the giant DO toolbars in v11?
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: K-Meleon anyone? on: February 13, 2014, 08:45:50 AM
Wow, the K-Meleon guys found a way to continue development? Neat!
Time to check it once again...
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager on: February 05, 2014, 03:29:36 PM
On Android, I fell in love with Solid Explorer, although I try alternatives (namely Lime and Fx) every now and then.
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Listary 4 released - tons of new features on: February 04, 2014, 07:19:12 PM
Listary 4.20 has a "Launch Applications" feature now.

Seems like FARR is redundant.  Cool

+1 for Music Bee in case a full-featured audio center is what's needed. (Personally, I use AIMP3 which has a simpler but different user interface.)
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: NSA restraints? Yes we can! (not) on: January 20, 2014, 03:03:27 AM
Aw neat.

See, this is a good example of a political party which would never had allowed the NSA things to happen. Why didn't they get enough attraction? Right: because they are not "the ones"  nor "the others".

Sigh.
18  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: NSA restraints? Yes we can! (not) on: January 19, 2014, 07:46:06 PM
Considering the NSA has back-doored Windows

... and, according to Edward Snowden, every other major operating system, yes.

which "Liberal Party" are we speaking about not listening to?

Any!

(Is there a Pirate Party USA?)
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: NSA restraints? Yes we can! (not) on: January 19, 2014, 08:54:28 AM
I really wonder how this is related to "OS".

Also, US-American elections are a bad joke. Republicans, "Democrats" or...? I wish the Liberal Party had more influence, but no one votes for them. Why not? Stupidity.
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: BrowserID - Mozilla's solution to the password problem on: January 07, 2014, 10:23:34 AM
I meant mostly.  Wink
(Admittedly, most tech sites mostly allow it...)
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: BrowserID - Mozilla's solution to the password problem on: January 07, 2014, 10:16:21 AM
I like OpenID but I don’t get many chances to use it.

Large tech sites mostly allow a sign-in by OpenID, some board systems added that... well.
22  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: XYplorer offers 50% competitive discount for Directory Opus users on: December 23, 2013, 08:01:13 AM
But GP is right, there is no 64-bit XY ...  cheesy
23  Special User Sections / General Review Discussion / Re: Best spreadsheet on: December 21, 2013, 03:18:30 PM
Technically, I'm currently stuck between PlanMaker (very fast, very mighty, quite cheap) and Quattro Pro (very, ehm, just mighty). While I have Excel 2013 (for university-related stuff) and LibreOffice Calc (for everything else) on my hard disk, both of them lack a sane user experience.

Too bad that Wikipedia fails to have a real "comparison" regarding actual functionality available.
24  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Anti-Wikipedia-Beg methods? on: December 15, 2013, 07:50:37 AM
I usually just add appropriate "display:none" styles to my Wikipedia account's CSS file. Easier to manage.  thumbs up
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager on: December 10, 2013, 05:54:29 PM
There is nothing better than Directory Opus.

This was true until the "Vista-styled" versions were released which look bloated and a bit boring, no matter what you configure.

(Does dired count as a file manager? It is a serious competition to FAR Manager [which I also like as I stated a couple of years/pages ago].)

One tool, one purpose. Now what is the "one purpose" for file managers? Managing files? If so, it's actually sad that Proto development seems to have been halted.
