    No. Beer tiddlywinks. We use the discs and a wastepaper can.

    Since the download trend started, what? Around 2009 or so? I've had many occasions where I've needed to build a deployment or do a quick one time install, and having the USB drive sitting here is faster than a download could ever be.
    Also, I still have media for R14, R2000, R2002, R2004, etc. - you won't generally find those for download.
    Yes, I know the average user has no need for 15 year old apps, but sometimes it's helpful if for nothing else, than to go back and peek at the PGP file, or a menu file or something else historical in a older version.

    The box in the corner at home R14 3.5 inch floppies one day copy them, our 2016 install was from a download put on usb, my coffe cup coaster though is a dud 2011 DVD download, starts then stops. The commercial software I was involved in 9 floppies took a little while to install. They had a floppy disk copier aropund 100 disks at a time, oops I mean a long time.
