How is Blu-ray the better format, exactly?

The disc capacity is ultimately what matters most, I think.

What matters most is that virtually all the movie companies
have chosen Blu-Ray to release their films with. Warner
switched to it a few days before CES.

Also, Toshiba appears to be the only manufacturer of HD-DVD
players so far as I can find on store shelves.

It's the same story as Beta vs. VHS. HD-DVD might be better
technically in some respects, but with the movie makers behind it, Blu-Ray will be the winner.
