I’ve been watching the standards war that the next-generation DVD is in right now for a while. I’ve long thought that the blue laser format would win, but recently it looks like the fight is a toss-up.
Or worse: A draw.
If both standards become, um, standard, I will decide which one I support and will not purchase anything from the “other side.” This is stupid. It’s bad enough when it’s recordable-DVD formats that bother a rather small percentage of users who create their own material.
But to force a dual-standard system on buyers of pre-recorded movies is dumb dumb dumb. (via Slashdot)
