Do we know for a fact that current BD ROM replication lines can easily (READ: Cheaply) be modified to replicate 4 layer BDs?
Don't forget that in all of this discussion, given that the size for any particular density movie is a fixed target, the flash or standard ROM memory world might well have caught up by then.
By the time it becomes easy to make a 100GB BD-ROM readable at the right rate (isn't that largely solvable by a large cache by the way?) a 100GB USB/Thunderbolt/whatever memory ROM/flash memory stick might become the most alluring physical medium.
Or less clumsy words to that effect. Criminey. Not enough caffeine yet.
Well vinnie97, one of the kindest and most helpful and respected members here, was banned for silly reasons. And now vinnie_RIP is banned as well. The mark of an inexperienced moderator is to forget that their role is one of resource, not one of petulant authority and further that the members are doing the forum organization a favor by being here, not the other way around. They know darn well they screwed up here.
