    Flashing lights galore! Why people like, or need, to have those on their computers is beyond me, even with multiple drives. I´m sure someone will enlighten me, though ;)

    There are software solutions like DiskSpy available for the less technically inclined.

    Ahhh, blinkenlights, the one thing I would never ever miss on my Mac.

    This is the main difference between Mac and PC users. We like good-looking computers, they like blinking lights and neons and see-through panels...

    Hey, when you're used to fixing your OS every day (or at least worrying about it), you end up modding the computer itself too, I guess.

    Aww, you mean it wouldn't be cool to mount a light to the top of your computer that is linked to the processor so that the more active the processor is, the brighter the light gets to make it look like your mac is having a bright idea? :D
