Apple "A new report suggests that Apple may be planning to eliminate retail boxed software from its Apple Stores, instead focusing on promoting the Mac App Store for software sales. This is indeed a trend that Apple has been pushing for a while, but not all the software that Apple sells would necessarily be a great fit for pure digital distribution."

I don't know that program, but if you really believe that anyone could program something that takes THAT much space you are sorely mistaken.

IF that software would ever be sold only through the appstore all the fonts/stockphoto's/cliparts/sample sounds/sample movies would be accessed through a website later, reducing the size to about (guessing) 250 MB which nowadays takes only minutes to download. A LOT faster than going to a store

(also, some games on Steam are quite big and lots of software on MSDN is "DVD-size")
