CD-ROM is rapidly becoming the medium of choice for educational and so-called 'edutainment' software. A panel of speakers at the Winter Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV, commented on how surprising the explosive growth in CD-ROM sales was, and how it more than compensated for stagnant sales of software on floppy disks. Industry experts expect the market to grow to such an extent that supermarkets will soon be able to turn a profit on sell-throughs of cheaper titles and rentals of higher-priced titles. Disney has a large share of this market, and upcoming CD-ROM projects include titles based on the movies 'Pocahontas' and 'Winnie the Poo.'
