8 years (and 2 days) have passed from my first post in this community...  :-*


Oh... I don't remember when I first posted, ha, ha.  It's been a long time too!

Also: it is "ten years from now" now, and not only are floppy disks still out of style, you're practically a dinosaur if you still have a cd-rom/dvd drive.

Good thing dinosaurs are so cool. Although that's mostly literal ones.


I'm writing this post from my MSI GT80S Titan SLI.  Optical drive?  Check! 8)


I have a couple of colleagues who are nearing retirement, and neither of them had one anymore.


DVDs are a very particular case because there still is indeed a good reason for using them in some circumstances. They're simply the cheapest storage form per gigabyte. If you write something to a USB stick and you give it to somebody, you want it back, but if you give a DVD, that's no problem. Besides, DVDs seem to not rot like some writable CDs did, so you can expect them to store your data for a longer period of time if you don't touch them than flash drives.

There's another curious thing about physical storage media with time. Floppies and CDs may have been considered uncomfortable because of being large. I really never thought they were too large, but say they were, it made sense for 3.5" floppies and if even that was too big for you, then came standard SD cards. But now things have moved to the other end of the spectrum, since micro SDs are terribly uncomfortable for being so small!!!  In my opinion, the perfect size for portable media was that of 3.5" floppies. They just had to be made to have more capacity. They're not as easy to misplace as an SD card.

I think the true reason that these two inconsistencies occur is that the market now is focused toward cell phones, not computers. It's that. One more reason for me to hate cell phones  ;D
