Also note that the new Intel flash isn't the "traditional" type flash
that people have been using for years. It's quite a different thing
down at the physical level with regards to composition of materials and
There's going to be some pretty radical changes in the next 5 years with
regards to how memory and "flash" start getting intermixed. Don't worry
Linux will support this all just wonderfully, and before any other
operating system, Intel has been _very_ good at keeping the Linux kernel
developers in the loop during their development cycle, much more so than
any other hardware manufacturer in recent history.
