The note regarding hard drives isnt relevant - for two reasons. 1. A lot of us grew up during this time when hardware was struggling to keep up with business software constantly, but this has not been the case for the last 6 years - not for your average business user, at least. Anyone who has been using PCs since the 286 days knows what I mean. 2. Storage capacity is a different animal then CPU power. Your need for storage capacity was pushed by bigger apps on CDROM, MP3's, video, and digital photography and pr0n. The need for CPU power beyond that which is needed to run a web browser and MS Office for an average business user is more fixed.

An adequate bootstrap is a contradiction in terms.
