You wouldn't think so, but I guess it won't be long before there is a generation of computer enthusiasts (or non-enthusiastic IT professionals ;) ) who will take a step-back when they see a drive that _looks_ like current ones, but has 'this weird 40-pin connector' on it.


While I don't disagree, I suspect that those people also won't have much interest in re-using some ancient 100GB PATA drive they found somewhere.
