Our Club President, Fred Fernbach, recommended having a look at Ashampoo software collection, once a well-known photo editing program and now a collection of useful utilities.
Fred has been using a number of these free programs, while mentioning one in particular - Ashampoo Burning Studio FREE (or Burning Studio 2020).
When I proceeded to the download screen, this message arose: - "An Internet connection is required to activate the program. The program license is verified repeatedly at regular intervals."
No matter how good this burner might be, that statement put a stop to my interest in using 'free' Ashampoo software.
However, Burning Studio includes Blu-ray movie discs, ripping music, and ISO files.
[The free office software appears to be identical to the non-free SoftMaker Office Suite, which makes me cautious with respect to how Ashampoo obtains its licencing.]
