I don't think it can simply be dismissed as a bad habit. Consider the
I have a computer that i want to install debian on, and no (decent)
internet connection. I therefore borrow the cd set off a friend,
and install everything i think i might (ever) want, so that i don't
have to re-borrow the cd-set every time i find i need another
Now sure i could simply copy the cd's, or even buy them, but there's no
good reason why i should have to.
