Re: LightScribe disc labeler for GNU/Linux

Cost of the burner aside, I believe it wont last. Many people are happy with using your basic Sharpie marker and paper labels that go through the printer. For better quality at a price that is a bit more but not extreme, you can get a printer that can print directly onto a CD/DVD and printable media. If you need more than that, send your gold master in to be mass-produced. LightScribe is a nice novelty, and can be somewhat useful, especially compared to Yamaha's ill-fated Disc Ta2 Technology, but unless people actually see a price savings compared to printed labels, most people will not buy the LightScribe discs, instead using the money to invest in a good Sharpie.
