If Microsoft are going to enable burning of any type of CD/DVD as part of a future OS, how on earth are they going to stop people pirating films and music? O.K. they can stop you from copying directly from one CD/DVD to another, but what about getting a MPEG or AVI off some P2P network and converting that to disc, all with the big M’s backing? I can see the MPAA and RIAA having a lot to say about this, and the end product might be so limited it will be totally useless. Somehow I thing Nero and intevideo don’t have a lot to worry about just yet. BTW well done for getting rid of the Roxio crap.
