Msoft has announced that all PC's designed to run windows must now be fitted with at least
two hard drives.

The first, which may be only 20 gigabytes, will house the OS and data.

The second, which should be a recommended minimum capacity of 60 gigs, will be used to provide enough free space for patches and updates.

End of press release.

Maxtor - is said to be 'delighted' by the news.

Sound advice I'm sure if it's the other way around - separate the data from the OS Laughing Laughing Laughing

20 GB... that equals the memory load of OpenOffice!

The 60GB will be used by the swap file when users open a document with many many large pictures...
