Cdrtools is a set of 100% free true OpenSource programs that follow the definitions from OSI (originally written by Bruce Perens).
Cdrtools is under constant free and open development since February 1996. The goal for cdrtools development is to permanently provide a free suite of programs for writing CD/DVD/BD media and succeeding similar products (like e.g. HD-DVD). Since more than 14 years and differently from the dead forks from this suite, the original software points out that permanent development to the benefit of the users is the intention of this project.
