Our good friend and
Microsoft MVP Chris Lanier moved to clear up some
controversy over whether or not Vista would include native support for any next generation format, confirming that
yes, it will ship all right and ready for your HD-DVD's. Blu-ray support will need to come from a third party, so look
for an extra disc of software when you pick up that shiny new Blu-ray drive for your PC.
No word however on
whether or not Vista will include the vaunted "write your blog posts while you lay on the couch and play Xbox
360" feature. We'll keep you updated.
