PPeter, I agree. This article is the reason I wanted to see HD-DVD as a winner. Cheaper media faster, minor changes to production lines. Proven media more or less. And HD-DVD was compatible with DVD so it would probably have been a lot easier to move excisting dvd-movies onto HD-DVD discs. I don’t think blu-ray has any advantages, the “BS” talk about larger storage space don’t matter. 25Gb or 50Gb is still to small now that harddrives are reaching 1Tb. Anyway, now that we only have one format, it remains to be seen what all other in the BD race will do. The loosers are the consumers. Clearly it’s the industry, mainly the movie industry that has choose this format. Let’s all hope that this turns out “OK” in the end anyway.
