Sure, nothing stops me from ripping my DVD library to digital format and feeding it into the laptop that way. But, why should I be stopped from plucking a disk off the shelf and slipping it into the machine? Ripping disks ain't always the most convenient method by time spent or quality of output either.

When they dropped floppies, optical disks where already well established and flashdrives where coming in fast. The "but they dropped flashdrives once" doesn't cut it.
