Obviously distributions thought people wouldn't use it if people knew it was another program. I feel the same way as I do when I order coke and get pepsi, it's a scam.I can't speak for the people who put together the distributions, but I'm not at all convinced about the "Obviously". I suspect that the larger motivation was "Don't break existing scripts, don't break existing GUI front-end applications".They definitely broke existing GUI as the original cdrecord works while "wodim" does not work in many cases.
Fewer complaints to them, I would think.The Authors from k3b even started to look for the original cdrecord to be able to use this instead of the plagiat.
