Admittedly, I don’t care much about HDDVD, but I don’t understand why this product is a big deal. Here’s my issue: What is this software being used for? This software is used to rip discs. So if you HAVE the HDDVD movie, and an HDDVD-ROM, you can rip it to your computer. You can also share it with other people, via peer-2-peer, or burn it onto 2-4 DVD+RDL’s, or via external HDD. Realistically MOST people probably won’t be doing this. SOME people will share the files via peer-2-peer, but most people probably don’t want to D/L 15GB-30GB of data for 1 movie. Also, ISP’s are cracking down on bandwidth use a lot as well (at least in my area). Even when HDDVD-R burners become available, the media cost is very expensive. If you’re burning a copy for a friend who ALSO has an HDDVD drive/player, then there would be some savings (not to mention legality issues), but it’s still pretty expensive for a copied disc. So what are people going to be using this for?
