It appears that some time between the last time I used Nero and now, it has turned into a bloated, computer-hijacking piece of crap. Ergo, I do not want to buy it.
I do, however, want a program with which I can design CD labels and case inserts. There are free ones out there, but all the ones I’ve seen are extremely limited. I need something that will allow me reasonably full functionality from a graphical and text standpoint — not full-scale image manipulation, since I can do that in other programs, but (at a minimum) the kind of control you’d get out of, say, MS Paint. I don’t mind paying for this; I just don’t want to pay for 270MB of crap I don’t want in order to get the 30MB I do want.
