    Blu-Ray drives can benefit many by offering:

    1.Ability for users to watch Blu-Ray movies from their own computer.

    2.Burn HD video and sound data to disc.

    3.Have a much larger capacity than CDs and DVDs combined.

    4.Enabling computer programmers the ability to experiment with Blu-Ray file systems, sectors, and data structing, as well as write Volume Boot Record bootstrapping kernels and software, and/or boot from the device when none others are available or capable.

    Why is Blu-Ray so big in movie distribution media, but so small in modern day computing use and practices?

    Vote and push for manufacturers like Dell to install OEM-supported Blu-Ray drives, driver software, and this will both benefit them and us in the long run.

    Blu-Ray drives are noticably more expensive than regular optical drives - which is one reason why they don't come as standard equipment in most computers.
