Why does DVD burning have to be such a chore?

I can't figure out for the life of me why making DVDs has to be so difficult. I've used a number of free and commercial programs over the years. Sometimes the process goes swimmingly, and sometimes it just plain fails for no apparent reason.

Recently I was in a bind because I really needed to create a DVD for a class I was teaching, and my programs just weren't working. So I downloaded a trial of Nero 9. Turned out I had to first install .NET version 3.5 for it to work, which took some time, and then it took Nero forever to install. Tonight I'm running into difficulties again, and figured I would uninstall Nero since it was past the trial period. It took freaking 10 minutes to uninstall. Why is even uninstalling DVD software such a pain in the ass?
