Shirley you jest. Do you really think Ms is going to support Solaris? As
far as the Irix goes it's up to SGI to support the latest standards since
they are a full licensee of QT.

Read the Ms page. What does it say? Nobody uses AVI and .WAV

this comes the same week as QT 3.0 with full cross platform authoring

Hollywood is running pretty damn well on QT and AIFF. Who asked for this?
Professional users or Microsoft's little dick syndrome division?
