I'd just chalk it up to development cost savings. Everyone is just going to use VLC anyway, it's even mainstream at this point. No need to waste time and effort making something inferior.

edit: Of course after saying that I check the Steam software survey and VLC is not on there at all... what gives?

And apparently that survey is from July 2010

I watch Blu-Rays on my PC all the time. In fact, it's the only Blu-Ray player I have. Also, this isn't going to reduce Windows pricing at all. Windows 8 is going to cost exactly as much as Windows 7. Not that it really matters. I have no intention of "upgrading" to 8 anyway.

This should reduce the cost of a Windows license

I haven't had an optical drive in any of my PCs for years, and I wouldn't be surprised if the same applies to more of you. Just ask yourself: when was the last time you really used your optical drive?

Let's face it - it's never been a particularly good storage medium, in terms of capacity, reliability, and speed.

Goddamn that fucker is high on the kool aide.
