In comparison, the Mac-blessed have had SCSI for pretty much forever... and now they have Firewire... and USB 2.0 (as opposed to slower PC-standard USB 1.1). If they want something, they plug it in to the outside of their computer, and it pretty much works. If they want to bring their stuff over to another computer, they pick it their drive, bring it over to another computer, and even boot off of it -- no jumpers required -- or they simply network the computers in question together. Note the emphasis on simply.
Somehow, none of this seemed like a particularly useful or important thing over in the PC world, I guess.
So, when I got a chance to get 160 GB of plug-n-play external drive goodness for only about $60 this weekend, I jumped at it. All that space. Music. Video. Even room to automatically download the latest bittorrent offerings. Sexah!
I held off on installation until after the weekend because I had noressa over and thought it would be too painful and time consuming...
Least. Painful. Install. Evar.
