    In other words: let's hope not. Apparently users are very smart nowadays, so they'll be able to decide what and where to get any neccessary component of their system.

    There are a lot of clueless non-technical users out there.

    They won't know why a video is not playing because a codec is missing.

     

    That is the idea difference between Apple and Microsoft.

    Apple dumbs down too much and removing features.

    Microsoft doesn't dumb down enough, and cannot claim "It just works" like Apple does in certain areas.
