DVD+RW Pulls Further Ahead
By David Dritsas
As DVD recording roles out to the consumer market with DVD-RW and DVD-RAM, DVD+RW seemed to be riding in the dust trail, but last week at PC Expo, the DVD+RW alliance made several firm product announcements as well a new alliance, hoping to assure the public that its format is still on the map.
In the PC realm of DVD recording, where the category has already made its debut, Dell Computer Corp. announced that it would support the DVD+RW format. Although the company made no specific product announcements or pricing plans it did say that desktop PCs from Dell would feature DVD+RW drives in the fall.
