Microsoft is pumping up their support of HD DVD, featuring it heavily at the WinHEC conference today and creating a webpage aimed at promoting the format to consumers. Not only did they confirm the upcoming Windows Vista OS will ship with all the drivers and other software necessary for playback, they showcased the software and hardware coming from partners like HP, Niveus and InterVideo focused on HD DVD playback and authoring.

All that is nice but when is someone shipping an HD DVD burner and media like Blu-ray already is?
