It's sad that Yamaha won't be supporting the 32x CD-RWs, but then again, they might not EVER really take hold anyways. The only way Yamaha could have really stayed in the battle would be to do what Plextor is doing with its' premium drives, and release some really FUNKY software as well! but this would be very difficult for them to do since both LiteON and Plextor have been doing this for a while, and Yamaha would probably be starting from scratch.
What scares me is the companies that are pushing for 54x writing speeds!!
