MS to include UDF Authoring in Whisper OS


The following part is from Bill Gates speech of WinHEC 2000 in New Orleans, Apr. 25, 2000:

"..On the front you'll notice we've got a combination DVD ROM/CDRW storage device, eliminating the need for floppies. In addition, in Whistler we've added support for CDR and CDRW into the operating system so you can drag files over to a CDR, just like you would any floppy, and burn them for your friends. Of course, you have USB, IAAA 1394 ports right here on the front. And you'll notice this new device right here. You've probably seen these on PCs before, usually they've been proprietary LCD devices, indicating the machine's speed. Well, we've expanded on that concept a little bit, based on what we saw in the homes when people were using their PCs.."

We don't know yet what engine will be used for the new UDF packet writing to CDRW. Our guess would go for Adaptec's DirectCD technology…
