Just saw an interesting news.
It seems that Microsoft plans to discourage the use of HDDs for the Windows installation.
The idea is that SSDs shall become the norm for the boot medium.
Using SSDs is not a bad idea, as long as it's optional, I think.
But if SSDs become the norm, does that mean that the boot process nolonger will be optimized?
If you have to work with a bottleneck, you'll try to optimize things.
GIF and JPEG/2000 were born out of the necessity to overcome limitations.
If there's no limitation/bottleneck, like the HDD, will things still be improved or will Windows loose the ability to boot from HDD altogether?
Personally, I believe that's just a lazy workaround to make Windows 11 appear to run more snappy.
By making powerful hardware a requirement, you don't have to spend any actual efforts into improving the software.
