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."

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

But the "9 DVDs" would still need to be downloaded, right?
