:r SCSI is very much dead for most users. I don't really see a need to keep it around except, possibly, at the high end such as servers and such. SCSI products were so much more expensive and not much faster than EIDE/ATA to justify, IMHO, for the home PC, unless you crave the fastest possible machine. Even then, I believe you're wasting your money. Instead of spending time and money on SCSI, they should be spending it on improving the current PC standards of EIDE/ATA, USB and Firewire (though Firewire is not a largely available standard on PC's like USB). Here's another problem that always plagued SCSI, Window's and DOS OS's never had native drivers for SCSI cards. That may have changed since WIn 98, which is the latest OS that I own and use at home. I had to add in a SCSI card when I bought my current computer, three years ago, and had to use the drivers that came with the card because Win 98 did not recognize it.
