[News] New Reviews of Songbird and K3b

Analysis: Mozilla Songbird Does Music, But Can It Be A Hit?

,----[ Quote ]
| There is a something innately organic about Mozilla and Mozilla-based 
| applications. Perhaps it's the fact that they are developed as open-source in 
| a veritable tech commune where code is readily shared and constantly 
| evolving.   
| Mozilla's most popular offering is the Firefox browser, trailing Internet 
| Explorer as the Web browser of choice. Mozilla's e-mail and news client, 
| Thunderbird, has made some noise in the tech world as well.  
| There have been a number of apps spawned from the Mozilla ideology, and while 
| not part of the Mozilla application suite per se, they do utilize the Mozilla 
| framework of being open-source and cross-platform. Songbird is one such app. 
| Songbird 0.5 is the Mozilla counterpart to Apple's iTunes and has recently 
| been released in final version.     


Burn Your CDs and DVDs! K3b Review

,----[ Quote ]
| The latest stable K3b version is 1.0.5 and you can get it from the official 
| website. Work is also in progress for the KDE4 port, which is scheduled to be 
| the next release, 1.1.  
| As a conclusion, K3b has all the tools you need, it does its job very well, 
| is mature and stable, and development started at the KDE4 port. K3b is 
| definitely one of the best Linux burner applications out there.  



The LXer Interview: Sebastian Kügler of KDE

,----[ Quote ]
| If you ever want a glimpse of how much Sebastian Kügler does around KDE just 
| subscribe to the kde-promo e-mail list which is as busy as it is effective, 
| and that is just one of the many tasks that he is charged with. In his time 
| with KDE, Sebastian has witnessed and helped facilitate some of the most 
| sweeping changes the organization has ever seen. In our Interview we talk 
| about those changes and more.     


Burning CDs/DVDs in Linux with K3B

,----[ Quote ]
| All in all, I see little room for massive improvement in K3b. It is a
| very solid program, has not crashed on me in the year or two I've been
| using it, and has pretty much been able to handle whatever files or
| formats I've thrown at it.


Burn Baby Burn

| MS: Are you the sole developer?
| ST: Not completely. There have been some contributors over the years,
| but only one is still left: Christian Kvasny, who does the VideoCD
| project and VideoCD ripping. Apart from that, basically, all the code
| was written by me since most of the things other people contributed over
| the years have been re-implemented.
| I am not completely sure why it is that K3b has so few developers.
| Maybe because it is hard to work with me on K3b. I am quite protective
| of my code and the K3b design. I think I've scared some away. ;)

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
