Mark - I'm afraid your seriously self-deluded. At this point, HD-DVD would be more aptly considered the "proprietary" format. With Toshiba going it alone, and all but one studio supporting the other format, how can you possibly envision a scenario where Blu Ray "won't be around".
The following things would have to happen for Blu Ray to go away:
- The PS3 goes away.
- Sony switches to HD-DVD
- Fox switches to HD-DVD
- Lionsgate switches to HD-DVD
- Pioneer switches to HD-DVD
- Samsung switches to HD-DVD
- Disney switches to HD-DVD
- Panasonic switches to HD-DVD
The following things need to happen for HD-DVD to go away:
- Toshiba switches to Blu Ray
- Universal switch to Blu Ray
Which of these scenarios is more likely to occur, would you think?

Why are so many people blindly defending the Toshiba/Microsoft duo? A combination of the richest man in the world and a Japanese electonics company that was indicted for espionage against the United States in the 80s (http://openweb.tvnews.vanderbilt.edu...01-NBC-10.html
Are these really the people we need to be sticking up for with our last breath?
