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.

Well I still have a dvd/cd rw drive, watch DVD movies sometimes etc. But as I use Linux which is much better than Windows of course, this news just makes me smile. As well as creating another Vista, Microsoft are alienating so many of their customers I predict Linux and MacOS will be getting a fair number of extra users.
