The "About K3b" under "Help" menu identifies K3b as "A CD and DVD Burning 
software".  The menu items under File > New Projects provide variuous options 
for DVD projects.  May be, the K3b team should be taken to task for 
mis-representing the facts.  (I haven't had any opportunity to burn DVD's 
yet, otherwise i'd have done the honours!)

Your experiences with inability to use K3b for burning DVD's would have 
strongly supported your claim about "availability, ease of configuration and 
ease of use".  As of now, it is hearsay at best.

just my 2p worth of observations.
