Too few people know the hidden advantage of optical storage. It is highly underrated.
Optical discs are water-resistant, EMP-resistant, have the cheapest unit price, no unexpected data losses, no transistor leaking, predictable disc rot with error scanning and excellent offline filesharing. And for our community, experimentation fun.
Not saying that flash storage or HDD is bad, just that optical storage is now underrated due to improper marketing. Each storage type has individual advantages.
