I'm pretty sure that original pressed CDs are what they were talking about when they said "100 years", not burned CD's, which I wouldn't expect to last as long.

I've got some music CD's I backed up in the 90's (so I had the copy in the car, not the original) that are still readable. Not tried with data ones: I transfered them to my RAID5 NAS ages ago.
