I hardly think that not having "fast" network access everywhere you want
to install is "the past".  Network speed is relative; I have multiple
T3s at the office so I can download ISOs fast and burn them and carry
them home.  I have 1.5M DSL at home, but it would still take way too
long to install over that link.  For Fedora 3, Core + Extras = 3.5G.  If
I even installed 50% of that, it would take 2.6 hours to install (if the
install downloaded at 100% speed continuously, which it won't).  Also, I
don't always install where I have network access.

A significant part of the world does not have access to high speed
Internet access (and probably will not for the foreseeable future).

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
