Samsung’s Flash memory Harddrive – Windows Vista Only

The Register is reporting that Samsung and Microsoft will have a demonstration of Samsung’s new Flash-based harddrive here in a few weeks at WinHEC (Windows Hardware Engineering Conference). Flash-based harddrives have a lot of advantages – especially in the area of durability, but the initial expense will be one of the largest hurdles to widespread adaptation (there are technical hurdles, but by the time these things are ready to ship, those should be overcome).

It looks like Microsoft Windows Vista will be the first Operating System to support such storage, so it’ll be a while before anybody sees these drives in production machines.
