>CD-R decomposes in 5-10 years

What? That's a new take that I have not heard! 5-10 years? Where is

If that is true, more people need to be informed... I'm sure that there
are thousands of people that think they have a really long term back-up
if they've burned CDs. Is this statistic being hidden by the CD-R and
CD-RW manufacturers? Or is it even an accurate statistic?
