Today a friend of mine called me for burning a CD. The last CD I burned with GnomeBaker, which had to be installed before. Now I did not wanted to install an app first and to try what Ubuntu has to offer just out-of-the-box.
I inserted a blank CD and and a second later I had a icon on my desktop and nautilus popped up and showed me the blank CD-ROM. I just dragged to content to burn from the folder and dropped it on the CD-ROM-Icon. Then I just clicked the Write-to-disc-button, and after I configured the burning speed I could see the burning process.
