Remeber when developers were asking people here whether they should stop shipping libraries on stacks of CD and start shipping their libs on single DVDs? Now, many of the libs have grown into stacks of DVDs.
TDK has now announced that they are ready to ship single-layer Blu-ray recordable discs to the US with 25GB capacity. Eventually, they will sell dual layer 50 GB discs. One can assume that TDK will start selling Blu-ray drives in the US market soon. (Sure, the discs are twenty bucks a pop right now, but that won't last long.)
So, how long before big sample libs are stamped on Blu-ray (or HD DVD) discs? Two years? Three? If it's as long as four, I'll be surprised.
700 MB CDs seem so quaint now...
