I'll respond, despite my belief that your response was just another attempt to post your chart for the 3rd or 4th time in this thread.
You disagreed with only points 3, 4 and 5 - so I take it the rest of the 11 points were OK.
Regarding point 3 - it's fact. almost all HD DVD releases are in VC1, which has demonstrated a consistently better PQ than Mpeg2.
re: point 4 - it's fact. the majority, nearly 70%, of BD releases have been in Mpeg2, which has consistently shown lower quality, especially when combined with a single-layer disc. About 70% of BD releases are on a single layer disc, most of these in Mpeg2. In fact, around 50% of BD releases are both Mpeg2 and on a single layer disc.
re: point 5. It's my opinion, shared by others. BD did a lot of talking, but not enough delivery. HD DVD delivered, in spades, consistently.
As a anecdotal note, I only posted that list because someone asked me repeatedly why I preferred HD DVD. They are the reasons I prefer the format. One can argue with them till the cows come home, but they are still my reasons.
There are a lot of folks jumping all over this BB thing and using it as an opportunity to say the "war is over" or that "HD DVD is dead" or otherwise trying to make fun of HD DVD supporters, but at the end of the day, in 30 days, it'll mean a lot less.
BB is taking the position that many of their customers don't matter, which is always a big mistake, IMV...
