yes, of course. But lets look at the situation of bad internet, power
outages etc. if you can deliver something that is a snapshot it can be
updated when you have a connection. some places just need a dvd or two
with the most important information and they would be happy.
they say that in the past the avg person had only one newspapers worth
of information in their whole life.

also it would increase adoption, a dvd or set of dvds with information
that is able to be copied could be installed by the local pc guy, it
would give him something to do. that would at least get people moving.

sorry to be contrary and backwards, but this is what i learned in the
digital third world.
thanks
mike
