quote: What, something that doesn't have a horrible bus structure (Should I really need to make sure I put devices on separate channels just so that they don't slow each other down when both accessed?), easy to route cables, hotplugging, NCQ, and so forth? And further criticism because an older OS doesn't automatically have drivers for a newer standard? Yeesh, I wonder what we should still be using if new hardware standards are a no-go.
quote: How often do you swap drives round that you'd care about the bus structure? Who cares about the bus structure anyway except bozos who're dazzled by buzzwords?
quote: How often have you used hotplugging? How many people use it in general? A USB enclosure achieves the same thing as well.
quote: "An older OS"??? This is precisely the stupid newer-is-better attitude I'm ranting about! 90%+ of the market runs on XP, O lover of shiny new things who can't think critically!
