Virtual Box

Sooooo......  are you still going with the idea of a "Virtual Box" on your site, or will push for non-virtual, real-world, shelf space box?

I have given this a lot of thought and kinda like the virtual box idea.  It makes the software product more appealing to "seem" tangible.  Even though it is still only a download.

By "virtual box," you mean, a picture of a software box on the website when there is no real box?

I consider this false advertising, so, no, I wouldn't do it.

Those fake boxes are so easy to spot too. And it always cheapens a product.
