Ok, so I had a few files I needed to get burned onto a cdrom. And I thought, ok lets give that cdburner thing in nautilus a try. So I put in a blank cdrom in my cdburner and nautilus pops up with a ‘burn:’ view. I drag&drop my files over, press burn, and a dialog asking some basic questions appear, like burn speed etc. I press continue, my cdrom gets made and I am happy.

I guess ‘just works’ is possible with free software too :)

Thanks to everyone involved!
