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.

I still have an optical drive

Usually I don't buy whole new computers, but just upgrade what I have in place. So I still have an optical drive. I'm not sure if it works though. I don't think I've even used it since I put in the new motherboard two years ago. I think it works...

I am curious about how many people have one and how often they use it.
