Until multiple devices be string are available SATA will have logistical

out the back, about 5cm by 1 cm, to a real bunch of those little round
cables running everywhere. Certainly doable, but I think I'd name the
server "Medusa" if I built it.

Sorry, SCSI is moving to point-to-point serial attachment (SAS), too :) While not quite ready to call Parallel SCSI dead, it's definitely dying...
