Microsoft have just announced that its upcoming Windows OS, Windows 8, will not play DVDs out-of-the-box, citing that only 6% of Windows 7 users ever used Windows Media Center, its media centre hub.
It claims that the removal of DVD playback will ensure that it (Microsoft) will not have to spend 'a significant amount in royalties', i.e decoder licensing.
Microsoft cite the 'ever-changing landscape' of computing as a reason to canning DVD support, with Windows 8 having compatibility with tablets and ultrabooks, which themselves lack optical drives. Media Center and DVD support will be available for a fee via Windows Control Panel (Formerly Anytime Upgrade) in Windows 8, but I think the choice of omitting such ubiquitous technology is a good idea- if DVDs are going the way of the dodo, then I'll be happy to pay a tenner less for some quality software.
