Nowadays, you can even install operating systems via 4 gig flash drives as long as you can copy the disk files from someone else's optical drive.

It's really stupid that Microsoft makes Win8 available for download for the consumer upgrade path but only distributes DVDs for the OEM version. I want an ISO damnit!

Optical media is home to much higher quality media though. CDs have a higher bitrate than MP3s bought from any online storefront and definitely sound better....blu-rays (heck even some DVDs) look vastly superior to any highly compressed streaming or "digital copy" version.
You may want the optical to die but you're all willing to accept such terrible compromises with regards to quality it makes me cringe.

Most streaming video is terrible quality, but we passed transparency for audio a while back.

I was talking about audio settings (i.e. It'll be hard to find somebody who can actually tell the difference between 256Kbps AAC and FLAC, etc.). Audio for streaming media does often suffer though (I swear YouTube uses mono audio for some quality settings)
Not for multi-channel audio. I can definitely hear the difference between a Netflix stream and my movies on Blu-Ray.
