HD DVD dead, what now for the PS3?

,----[ Quote ]
| Now that the HD DVD high definition disc format is dead . What effect will
| that have on the Sony Blu-ray equipped games machine? According to analysts,
| an immediate 10 % sales boost.


This will cost Microsoft a few more $billions, which it wouldn't have if it
bought Yahoo. So, the reason this format war is mention is:

1. It's costing Microsoft a kidney when it cannot afford losses

2. The PS3 will be used by more and more people to run Linux
as time goes by. There will be better distributions for it
which take advantage of the unit's full capacity, better
awareness, yet the number of installation can never be counted.

The drive is just a way to sell PS3 (Windows-incompatible hardware, namely
Cell). The drive (or DRM or whatever) not of much relevance to Linux.

| come true.


Microsoft is losing its grasp on the technology markets
