I started the K3b project in 1999 because I was not happy at all
with the audio writing capabilities of the existing burning
applications. So I thought: "why not write your own?". Like always
after finishing the audio burning feature I just kept going.
Since then I have put a lot of effort into K3b (much more than was
good for my studies of computer science ;). A lot of good feedback
stimulated me to enhance K3b to fit all my users needs. The main goal
of K3b was always to have a very intuitive to use interface without the
usual lack of features that come with most easy applications. I wanted
(and still want) an application that someone who is going to burn his
or her first CD can handle easily and on the other hand one should be
able to influence most settings if wanted.
