Just in case anyone was doubting it existed, I can confirm that the Classic Traveller CD ROM exists and my copy arrived here in the UK yesterday. The content looks good, and is not just a re-scan of the reprints. The Little Black Books are presented as individual pages and the colour is all there. There are a few examples where the scan isn't perfect (some light grey lost on the hex map for Twilight's Peak, for an example) but this is an awesome resource.
The text if fully searchable, and the index page is better than then MegaTraveller one if you prefer using that to navigate. There are three editions of Traveller on the CD ROM - Starter Edition, the 1981 Little Black Books and The Traveller Book. Everything else that GDW published is here as well.
For its cost, I cannot do anything but recommend it. I'll try and get a short review done for the next BITS newsletter.

Marc Miller has sent out an email apologising for a slight delay to the shipping date of the Classic Traveller CD ROM. Apparently there have been a number of issues, the main one being the printed wrap for the CD ROM case. The CD is now expected to ship by mid-December 2006. A picture of the offending wrap can be seen below!
