Multi-Platform CD-ROM

Platform independent CD-ROMs are essential if one wants the contents to have some longevity in a fast changing technological context. What is the point of buying an expensive art CD-ROM, about the same price as an art book, if five years from now you can no longer look at it. Another issue is that if all CD-ROM are intended for a single platform, then it will naturally stick to the most popular one, preventing (through what economist call network externalities) other platforms, even technologically superior to compete freely on the market, for lack of CD-ROMs and other contents. This is typically the case for free software platforms. This page is devoted to documents on that topic, as well as ressources, commercial or other, for the production of platform independant CD-ROM.
