Interesting. I've never bought a single disc from any OS store and the very select few imports I do own have been gifted to me. So in the aim of supporting Australian retail, my collection is only about 300 strong. I have been told it could be over twice that if i'd imported. We make our choices don't those choices don't cost us too much. In my case, I know I helped support the Australian retail sector and as a small Australian business, feel it is the right thing to do.
It seems Amazon does not bother with refunds or exchanges, so if a disc order gets messed up and you get an extra, they let you keep it how I ended up the few imports I have.
if i ever need a book, ill keep them in mind,
i get all my hardware from Aussie shops, stuff i can see before i buy, and know i can just pop back in for a refund or an exchange
wouldnt even trust them to send me a DVD
whoever sold off Australia to foreign interests should be hauled off his private yacht in the Bahamas, get his kids out of those exclusive american colleges and do something useful for this country, not somebody elses ... and protect our retail industry from getting sacked (appropriate choice of word i feel)
