Hardware, Embedded Systems "The question that forms the title of this article has recently been posted on the Super User Q&A site for computer enthusiasts. At first I was shocked at how silly a question it was as everyone should know that, right? But then I started to think about it and realized anyone under a certain age probably has no clue."

Heck, Linux uses drive letters too! Don't /dev/hda1, /dev/hda2, /dev/hdb1, /dev/sda1, /dev/sdb1, etc. ring a bell?


It's not the same thing. Windows A: ,B:, C: drives are the directories where some devices are automounted.

In Unix, after mounting or automounting, you have something like /mnt/floppy, /media/floppy, /media/cdrom or /media/porn, whish is more meaningful.
