I haven't seen any hard info yet. (Right now there are a whole bunch of
questions about the future piled up behind the final governmental
approvals of the mergers, and I suspect things like Linux are tied in
with the bunch.)
As Tim noted, as the Player adds more features, it becomes more
difficult to support them on operating systems with fewer media
I also know that the 8.5 Player throws a monkeywrench into any 8.0
porting -- I haven't heard any official word on this, but it seems
trickier to do two separate ports in succession, where one port would
have a life of only a few months.
So... I'm sorry, I don't have any solid info here yet. I'm hoping we get
some soon. The above are some of the ingredients that go into the
decisionmaking, but I'm still not sure which way things would play out.
The overall goal is to make people happy, if that general orientation is
