There is no ceremony with WHDLoad.
There's that certain charm to flipping through tangible items in a disk box, then inserting said tangible item into a floppy drive with a mechanical clunk.
Same thing with vinyl records.. Very cumbersome shit with pops and hisses, but you can't dispute that there's a ceremony involved when listening to them. :-)
Nevertheless, I use WHDLoad and listen to digital music + watch films off my hard drive. That's just the way it is in 2011. :-)
