I never had such a PC though I would love one.
I don’t think I burn too many disks. I know friends in Seoul, Daejon, and Busan who burn thousands of DVD disks.
The only reason I started burning was that I was the SysOp of the largest multimedia community in South Korea back in 1999. It soon became apparent that the server storage was too small and the ISP company, Thrunet, was not keeping their promise to backup the data when necessary so I had to do something at my cost. It was not illegal at that time even though I was uploading 5GB of MP3 and MPEG-1 files in a day. I had to refrain from uploading because there were other uploaders that repeatedly made the forum out of service due to full hard disk space. I often had to make sure nothing there was illegal enough to do harm to the forum because government officials had accounts to monitor any place inside the boards and hard disks. I myself usually don’t watch TV or movies. I don’t play games so there is not real need of backup or buying a DVD player for my own entertainment.
That’s also why I have about 7-8TB HDD now and will try to have 1PB sometime. I use them as a virtual network drive for my friends in South Korea but sometimes also in other countries. There is no relationship to warez things. I’m too bold and straightforward for it.
