Windows While it's technically a regression, and while it will surely make those of us who remember having to install DVD support on Linux from third-party repositories smile, it's still a major change and a sign of things to come: Windows 8 will ship without support for DVD and Blu-ray playback.

Please get off your high horse and stop beating the piracy drum. Not everyone lives in the U.S. or really gives a shit what kind of laws you have over there. I'm sorry but that's just the way it is. For a lot of other countries it's perfectly legal to download Blu-ray quality media so my original comment stands firm.

With the death of DVD it is only a matter of time before Blu-ray and other optical media formats die. Good riddance!

Well f--king said too.

/me takes his optical drives off from his computers and throws them to the trash.

The Pirate Bay for life.
