Solid State

Alright, I learned about solid state a while ago, and was really excited then. But, as I've seen it start to evolve, I really think this is the future of storage. Granted, I've had a few beers tonight, and, have no money to invest, but, I think we're really on the ground floor of a technology that could revolutionize the industury. What do you guys think?

    Solid state hard drives will be the new storage medium of the future. Less moving parts is always a good thing in any device.

    I think we will also see operating systems running straight from RAM. (once upgrading your system to 10 gig of RAM becomes standard).

    I think virtual machines will be a key part in the future possibly huge networks where all the nodes have no hard drives there O/S's are run from the servers taken the need for a HDD out of the equation.

    Solid state does sound interesting! I wll get my hands on this tech once the prices have dropped.

    I also belivethe next future incarnation's of windows will be more lightweight I think Microsoft should really collaborate with the Open Source market to get the best of both worlds, Cygwin is a good example of how Open source technologies can be used to improve windows, They really do need to cut out the bloat from the O/S and make it more streamline and robust and of course stability is also a key.

    If you combine the games playing functionality of windows with Linux stability then you are onto a win win situation.

    Solid State storage device has been available for awhile now, but it is fairly recent that the price point and storage capacity is threatening traditional magnetic disk. There were a few recent articles posted on Slashdot that indicated the technology should be ready for the mass market in the next few years.
