A meager consolidation, but you are not the only one. Everybody, including
most of the people (I've met!) responsible for archiving important data,
believes that CDR's will last forever, and that there always will be a
Windows version (shudder).
Some time ago, there was an article on the subject in a danish periodical
for archivists, but absolutely no reactions have resulted.
The only thing to do, seems to keep all those conversion / archiving /
format / .... knowledge alive, so our (grand)children might use it.
