Thank you. I wondered when someone would point out that Betamaxes were around well after they "lost" the format wars.
Although, technically, I think they stopped manufacturing NEW Betamaxes in 200X. 2001, I think. But the point remains -- niche markets linger longer than the "gone in one year" predictions flying around this thread.
