Started with Unix in 1984. I have no recollection of what version but was labeled IBM, maybe a Unix-style shell on mainframe?, then to Apple ][ (who didn't?), Windows, Linux and AIX in 1993, OS/400 in 1997. Back on Windows now as a client only to my Linux boxen in the "cloud."

comment What are the Windows A: and B: drives used for?
@Joe, the difference is due to constant angular velocity on the drives vs. some who slowed the speed at the outer edge to achieve marginal increase in capacity.

No, D was not the CDROM. D: existed way before CDs were commonplace.

comment Which is the fastest Linux hypervisor?
@quickly_now, what are the utilization #s on the instances? My guess is they're far from being daily 80%+.

@Jason404, data was on SAN, not sure of your question. BUT: compare DASD v. SAN IO, SAN isn't the bag of chips it is made out to be.

comment Which is the fastest Linux hypervisor?
I've deployed countless instances of our classical software stack on various VMware instances (each >5k concurrent users). I have never seen them perform even close to bare metal or LPARs. It is fine software, just IMO far from being capable to support what is needed from IO spin locking.
