I haven't used Nero for a while since it has been getting enormously bloated. But I just noticed that version 10 offers separate download of just the Burning Rom once again. I think with version 9, you couldn't get it. You had to download a huge package and choose which parts you wanted to install. And the activation and everything was really complicated. The activation itself seemed to be a software component. I just remember it being terribly complex.
So, what are people's thoughts on the latest version? Frankly, I still think the Burning Rom is the best. But I'll only use it again if I can just install that one component easily without having to deal with the rest of the crazy suite. Ashampoo is really nice, I'm a big fan. But Nero's Burning Rom is still a little better. Not enough to really say much, but it is.
