P.S. I don't think your remark about Gene Roddenberry is appropriate. If you seriously wish he hadn't been there, there would be no TNG to cherish and appreciate. But to him and other people content was, is and should be more important than the way it is "wrapped".
I don't wish he hadn't been there, I just don't agree with all of his opinions. He was a great ideas man and producer.
I don't think TNG going widescreen is inevitable. I think it's more likely that physical screen borders will disappear eventually, and we'll be watching TV on holographic displays that can become any shape necessary, rendering this whole issue moot. :P
