Ten years ago today, Circuit City (R.I.P.) pulled the plug on DivX. I thought it was worth paying tribute to the other HTF old-timers who ceaselessly fought for "open DVD" when its very existence seemed in doubt. Although we can never know exactly "what if...?" -- it's quite possible that, without our concerted efforts, by now, all our current home-theater software would be "pay-to-play," instead of the panoply of choices, from purchased Blu-Ray to online downloads, we now enjoy. Thanks to all of you who fought the good fight a decade ago.
