Remember when computers you buy would come with install disks/CD's/DVD's? wasn't that nice?
Now they put all of that on a hard drive partition. Would it be so hard to put it on some sort of USB Key or SD Card?
I use Linux, and I generally download and install Linux from USB Keys nowadays. But I can't believe Windows users don't get an option like that. It's ridiculous
I recently bought a solid state drive for my main laptop drive (for extended battery life, and increased speed) and am using the ultrabay slot on my thinkpad for a 1TB drive for my home directory. But the idea of transferring all of the Windows 7 install information to the SSD is such a hassle. I don't even use Windows (except as a honeypot should anyone other than me start up my computer)
I also find the tininess of micro-SD cards somewhat annoying. Compact Flash was a good sized format. It's too bad it didn't stick around.
