Hello j5wg-ga, 

According to a survey conducted by the Consumer Electronics
Association, roughly forty-two percent of home computers contained a
DVD-ROM drive in the year 2003.

?? the survey also stated that 47% would be purchasing at least one
DVD-ROM drive for their home system within the next two years.?

?Valve conducted a similar survey in August of 2005, which shows that
over eighty-five percent of its user base owns at least one DVD-ROM
drive. Of course, those statistics account only for Steam users, but
the results are still staggering.?
