Hardware, Embedded Systems Thinking that HP's memristors can't arrive early enough on the market? Here's competition already! A team at North Carolina State University, led by Dr Paul Franzon, has unveiled the "double floating-gate field effect transistor", a component based on the same principles as flash memory which would allow to store data for "a couple of years" in around 15 nanoseconds.

I'm running one of the higher end revisions of win2k (I forget which one) at home as a desktop OS on a quadcore cpu. Works great ;)

I actually prefer Win2000 to XP , Vista and 7. In fact I think it's the best desktop OS MS have released.

I know many wouldn't agree with me, but each to their own.

My bro uses it still. It runs the latest browsers he likes and still runs his games. Latest VLC and flash work great and Intel still pumps out windows 2k drivers. So its definitely a blast to use on modern hardware. It is retardedly snappy.
