So I got asked by a lot of you what Microsoft’s exclusion of Dolby from Windows 8 means.
Well there are a bunch of theories being posited on the web and some do make sense.
Important – This doesnt stop PC makers and OEM’s from licensing the technology from Dolby directly, Microsoft are just saying that they aren’t going to be the ones paying.
Second, maybe Windows Media Center will be revamped to focus on web content as opposed to DVD/CD playing.
Thirdly, maybe Media Center will be cut entirely. Would you even care? I cant even remember the last time I used WMP. It might be replaced with an entirely new player.
We’ll hopefully learn more at the BUILD conference…
