I was excited to learn that Microsoft is offering DVD maker with Windows Vista. Windows DVD Maker allow users to create DVDs of your home movies and photos so that they can be viewed on a normal DVD player, regardless of geographical region codes. What a great tool. Unfortunately, Microsoft completely missed the mark when they left out this useful app in Vista Business.
DVD Maker is only available on Vista Home Premium and Vista Ultimate. I guess Microsoft figured that there is no need to be creative on this front in a business or educational environment. Why would a small business want to create a DVD for marketing & promotional purposes? And surely, why would we ever want to teach Grade 6 students to turn their photos and video clips into a DVD movie?
We can only hope that Microsoft reconsider this decision and offer DVD Maker as a free download for all Vista Business users.
Hmmmm, what’s this iMovie thing that I keep hearing so much about.
