But having lots of incompatible standards is a good thing, right ;-)

(especially if you sell them...)

You think the situation will improve over time? To me, it seems the
longer we wait, the more incompatible standards we get...

The problem with a single standard seems to be that it becomes harder
to make improvements (e.g. bigger storage capacity).

(personally I dislike all CDs I have seen, they seem too easy to
scratch or otherwise damage).

I don't know anything about this standard - I guess that just means I
can't keep up, either.
