No BlueRay and HD DVD Support in Windows Vista.. :(

On Thursday, August 24th the APC Magazine has reported that the Windows Vista 32-bit OS doesnt come with Blu-Ray, and HD DVD playback support.

Initially Microsoft has scheduled Windows Vista to released in October and to able to meet the deadline, it seems that lots of pre decided features have not been included, that includes the Avalon presentation layer and WinFS file system.

At the Tech.Ed 2006 conference in Sydney, Microsoft Senior Program Manager Steve Riley revealed that only the 64-bit version of Vista will play protected video in either optical format at the full 1080p resolution.
However, still the both will be available as unsigned drivers. The hardware vendors, who does like to include the support may probably provide the required driver set to have these playback.
