Nero is very popular software which was released for the purpose of burning DVD’s, CD’s and other medias. The whole Nero Application is a whooping 370.5 MB in size (latest). The latest version included many scarcely used application software’s such as Media Player, Video Editor, Audio Editor, Photo Manager. Etc. but we mostly use Nero to burn the DVD’s, CDs and many of the users rarely use the other unwanted applications that come with the software and most times we wont use them at all. This is mainly due to the reason that there are much better alternatives for such applications too. For e.g. Audacity is a full featured and a nice alternative to the audio editor program that comes with Nero. The version 3 of Nero Software included only the DVD and CD burning feature only. But the latter versions arouse with many bloated stuffs that are mostly not needed by the users. Why a Burning Program should include such bloated applications. This was only the trick used by the manufacturers to sell their newer versions. After installation of Nero software it will eat up to 1.5 GB of our hard disk space simply without any use for us. Of course there are few users that play with those unused stuff that comes with Nero. Nero is not a freeware too. So we need to give our money if we need it to use it as long as we like. But if our purpose in only DVD, CD, Bluray disk… burning why we should unnecessarily install those bloated stuffs on our PC when there are many Free and Sleek alternative Software’s that will do these jobs perfectly?
