The new Nero suite is build on the basis of customer feedback, Jürgen Kurz, senior vice president, Business Line PC and Consumer Electronics, Nero AG said:
"In developing Nero 9, we polled more than 3,000 of our worldwide customers to determine the functionality that they really wanted from the suite,"
"This type of feedback has been invaluable to us over the last decade and has shown us that our consumers are increasingly living digital lives where the PC is the center of the home. They require cutting-edge multimedia capabilities which allow them to enjoy and share their content online and across devices with unparalleled ease of use."
While the new software suite is feature packed and takes care of all your multimedia needs from creating, importing, editing and sharing, most of the users never use all these functions and this functionality overload add to the already bloated Nero suite, if you are looking for a simple, free and fast Nero alternative try this.
