Who exactly is noone? The price of blue ray drives are coming way down
in the U.S. and aren't as expensive as you indicate. I think I
purchased my blue ray dvd drive for around $129.00 USD, and I've seen
them around $90 USD for a cheap brand. So they don't exactly cost that
much to own/upgrade. It is the blue ray discs that are actually still
on the high side yet.
My point though is you really need to stop making all inclusive
comments like "blue ray costs loads and noone owns them" because that
is simply not true. To be honest making statements like that really
makes you sound like an idiot. Perhaps not many in the VI community
have upgraded, but we are rather poor compared to the rest of the
mainstream PC market. Other people who actually have real jobs making
something like 60K a year definitely have the money to shell out for a
blue ray drive, blue ray disc player, and the discs to go with it.
Since such people make up the majority of PC sales it is no wonder
Microsoft and other companies are looking at improving blue ray
support, switching to 64-bit, etc because their primary target market
has the money to spend on that sort of thing. They don't consider
people like us, living on disability, etc as a part of their primary
target market. Nobody really does.
