    Does anyone know if the next OSX will enable people to use flash drives to boost up their boot times?
    I am not sure if all future macs will have NAND but enabling flash drives would be a great feature to help people speed up the start times of their laptops (and desktops). Hopefully Apple won't limit it to four gigs (ha, all of OSX 10.5 on flash would be amazing).

    All of the OS on flash would be, basically, useless. Storing key components accessed frequently would be the most intelligent. There are plenty of components/apps that are part of a default OS X install that do not get called often (if ever by some users).

    To me it seems like a strange technology at best. Storing/swapping info on something with clearly limited read/write cycles for a moderate increase in speed—a non-replaceable thing, even? I'll stick with what I've got, thanks. :rolleyes:
