I dabble a bit in photography and Corel recently acquired Bibble as well. Isn't Corel where software goes to die???

I haven't bought a Roxio product since EMC 8. I always did like their interface better than Nero. I don't know if I have ever used any Corel software, but I hope they can bring down the bloat so it doesn't take 1 or 2GB to install. If they did that, I might consider trying it out again. They should also bring back the ability to choose what components you want to install. Else, I just use ImgBurn.
