A combination of de-duplication and calculating and storing only the changes between similar byte streams is apparently the key. Imagine storing a terabyte of data on a single disk, and it all runs on Linux." Obviously nothing concrete or released yet so take with the requisite grain of salt.

Machines certainly can solve problems, store information, correlate, and play games -- but not with pleasure. -- Leo Rosten
