I suppose there are parallels, but there's also one huge (to me) difference: Kodak was not malevolently keeping PCD closed or trying to quelch competitors, in fact it was quite the opposite. Thus, even in the absence of vendors *trying* to lock users into a proprietary/closed/evil/sad format, users can still end up with no way to access their information. -- Nate
