Re: Thoughts on CD/DVD drives
For starters i hate optical drives
but, in my experience usb installs have some how managed to be both less reliable and/or less convenient optical based installs.
I think mainly this is because usb was designed for other things. Its almost like some standardization is missing or something. Too bad really, because all the potential is there.
Something to really think about that would kick the optical drive would be a seemless VM that would act as the main os. you would be able to install the latest version of whatever you like all whilst staying in the same session. Switching os could be as simple as pressing a button.
When i was a windows user, cds where hardly useful either. So im going to say that they're quite a few years out of date
if you in the market for something new you in the market for something new. I wish i had grabbed a new computer sooner instead of putting up with my old p4 box. would have saved me a lot of time. yeh the specs will keep changing the longer you wait but whatever you have now will stay the same.
