Geez...if cassettes and vinyl are still being made, I doubt seriously that CDs will stop being made any time soon.
Practically all ambient music CDs could be considered a special edition.
For me it's more about the music than it is about the package. With the advent of files, my music listening has increased dramatically.
If CD production was to cease, I would still be left with a huge library that would definitely get me through the rest of my life.
I'm sure everyone has noticed how most new audio products come with network capabilities making files easier to handle and play.
Streaming music services such as Spotify allow the subscriber (free or premium) to basically access a library far beyond what any one person could ever hope to purchase.
Google Music Service Beta allows me to upload several tens of thousands of files to the cloud which I can access from my phone or Android tablet anywhere I am with internet access.
As far as packaging goes, there's a lot less packaging from the purchase of files.
The future is the future...and I will be there...for a while
