Subject: Re: Explaining single level store to non i people

Until I read that Wikipedia entry I hadn't realized just how far ahead
the thinking of the IBM folks was when SLS was devised. Only now some
40 years later has solid state storage reached a point where finally
this is on the verge of becoming reality.

"IBM's design of the single-level store was originally conceived in
the late 1970s as a way to build a transitional implementation to
computers with 100% solid state memory. The thinking at the time was
that disk drives would become obsolete, and would be replaced entirely
with some form of solid state memory."
