Does anybody know the reasoning behind offering the Blu-ray/DVD combo packs in both Blu-ray and DVD packaging? I ordered the DVD packaging because Amazon can get it to me before Christmas, which they can't do with the Blu-ray packaging.

to make more money - that it is to drive up the sales of blu-ray players which will in turn mean people will buy (or rent) more blu-rays which normally cost more then dvds. Doing this with a favorite movie like Sound of music is a win-win for them - it is the gateway drug in a manner of speaking. Plus something as visual as Sound of music will make people wonder - how does that look in HD?
as more and more people buy more and more sets where the good stuff is on Blu-Ray; they will be tempted to just pitch their DVD Player and buy a Blu-Ray Player. I won't - unless my DVD players breaks. But i see no reason to buy something i don't need when I have tons of stuff i don't need already.

I understand the rationale for packaging a Blu-ray and DVD together, but why the two different kinds of packaging?

There are people anal enough out there not to buy a blu-ray/DVD release if they can't get it without a cardboard sleeve.

Depends on what you want to fit into your collection. If you need the larger DVD packaging to fit the rest of your video library, that's what they're providing. What I don't get, is the sometimes disparaging price differences between the two cases... (I like the blu cases. No need for the large DVD packaging.)

Yes - but there are no special features (well none worth speaking of) on the DVD

If you want the DVD only, get this version:

The Sound of Music (Two-Disc 40th Anniversary Special Edition)

It will include special features.
