Much has been made of Microsoft's supposed plan to include native
support for only HD-DVD
in their next OS, either in order to force customers to install extra software on their own
and/or to force OEM's to face licensing costs on their own. Despite that, Windows IT Pro says internal Microsoft
documentation indicates a plan to add Blu-ray DVD support to beta versions of Windows Vista.
officially says it has no plans for Blu-ray support, leaving that to third party companies like Cyberlink. All of this
comes just after Microsoft denied Blu-ray plans for the Xbox 360, so the question remains: Does Microsoft
really hate Blu-ray, or do they really like it and are just playing hard to get?
