Re: Positive Step for Bluray in Linux
While I agree that if we even keep using media, it will go toward solid state, I don't think it's anything that we have to worry about any time soon. People are still buying DVDs, so Blue Rays aren't going anywhere for a very long time. Just walk into Wal-mart and look at aisle after aisle of DVDs. Then look at the small section of Blue Rays they have with a very small number of choices. You can't even get all movies on Blue Ray that are offered on DVD yet.

Not true, at least in the US. You are allowed to make backups of CDs, but you are not allowed to make backups of DVDs or Blue Rays.
