Whenever something evil befell my upper lower class father he would pronounce, "Come the revolution, things'll be different". I can't find the original (Pop wasn't that creative), but today's announcement from Intel will do as an early salvo in the revolution.
SSD has gone truly Mainstream, Best Buy stocks them in stores. Mind, only up to 80 gig, but still. I know, most folk will tend toward using them as just faster spinning rust, just as your grandfather used disc as faster tape; that doesn't mean those of us who can push the envelope won't see them as further justification for BCNF datastores. No more of that "but normal users don't have SSD" baloney. Now, they do. Yee Ha.
