Default Demo Session

Does anybody know why the demo session is always included in the Pro Tools update packages? It seems like a waste of everybody's time and bandwidth having to download a 500mb folder with each update.

I just realized I had 5 copies (2.5 gb) of the demo session sitting on my Pro Tools files hard drive.

Would it make sense to seperate the demo session from the installation folder and provide a seperate download link for it?

The demo session is included with the updates because the updates are full installers and don't just update what's fixed. New users would only download the latest version so they wouldn't have the demo session from anything previous.

You're right musicman, but I still think it would be a good idea to offer a download sans demo session.

I'm not sure that I've loaded a demo session in Pro Tools since the "Be There" demo when I bought my Digi 001 with PT 5!
