Quote:You know, it brings up a good semantics question--there are hard disks in systems. A hard disk is, to my understanding, just a non-volatile storage disk. It just so happened that historically we only ever used platter/spindle disks because of how easy it was to make and use them. Now that SSDs are here, we have SSDs. But they're all hard disks. Shouldn't we be referring to previous ones (that we call HDDs) as "platter" or "spindle" disks? They're all hard disks.
