Boxed vs Download

For obvious reasons boxed.
a) i'm a collector and seeing all those great games on the shelf gives me pleasure :-)
b) If a company goes bankrupt or something, i still have my game nonetheless. I even tend to burn updates, mods and patches. because you never know the future..
c) I don't need to worry about online connection. Sure I have a broadband like anyone thse days, but in case i want to play a game and my net connection is not working then..I can just install it. (online activation trend is still an annoyance though)
d) I can borrow a game to a friend or sell it forward If i wish. I can't do that with steam, can I?
e) Printed manuals and other goodies
