: GV, I guess you're going to get dragged kicking and screaming into the future
: or even into today's world. There's really nothing you can do about it and
: the perks will change your realities one bit/byte/cent/dollar at a time.

It looks to me like there is something I can do about it, or rather something we can do about it. Besides, I said I don't digital distribution by MS on consoles. I've accepted it on PCs with Steam, because I trust Valve more (I don't trust them absolutely, but more than MS) and on PCs it's easier and more convenient to examine and make copies of files and data.

: I don't even have to come up with an supporting argument for it anymore. It's
: simply too obvious to ignore. Try and avoid this avalanche if you want but
: eventually you'll have to or even want to comply.

It being digital distribution, right? Without a legal change or a very different approach from what most companies do I won't welcome it for the most part, especially for things that are proprietary to the company that runs the distribution service and things that cost more than a cheap meal.
If you want people to get with the wave of the future, it looks like you might have to come up with a supporting argument, and regardless, saying you don't need to defend your position because what you want/like/approve of is inevitable is... well it doesn't seem that good (it sounds like a logical fallacy but I'm not sure).
