Display Adapters Demystified

The world of display adapter types is an alphabet soup of options today.  HDMI, DVI, VGA, UDI, DisplayPort?  Which will become the standard in the next few years?  HDMI looks like a sure bet in the consumer electronics space but it is failing to make inroads into the PC world yet.  DVI is the leader today and UDI and DisplayPort are both making a run for the crown.  ExtremeTech has a good article talking about each of the standards and their likelihood of becoming the overall leader.  Their quick take on the situation:  "With DVI so prevalent and UDI and DisplayPort on the verge of crashing the display party, it's unlikely that HDMI will become more than a footnote in the epic story of PC display technology."
