The single largest technical hurdle the Macintosh faces today is the utter lack of software support for surround sound (Dolby, DTS etc?). It has been over four years since this unheard-of gap between the Mac and PC developed. and still the “Use surround sound” check boxes in all our games go empty and useless. while our DVDs, CDs and TV tuners continue to ooze out the same paltry 16-bit, 48Khz stereophonic sound introduced ten years ago in the Quadra 660AV.

If this bothers you as much as it bothers me, sign the Surround Sound Hardware for Macintosh Petition. Until this serious issue is addressed the Macintosh will always be second best.
