All these formats should be available forever, just like books. Streaming is ok, but to be depending on a provider, internetquality etc. etc. Nice for discovering new music, but for new and high resolution audio/video cd's/dvd's/blu-rays/vinyls should be there for collectors. It would be a very dull world for the real musicfan/collector.
So very pleased the gift is a cd again and for the die-hard digital fans there's a download too!!
