:B Probably just a typo by cdfreaks. But I agree, get rid of IDE and FDD connectors on motherboards and stop producing IDE harddrives. There are convertors for getting SATA to IDE anyway, people could use that instead.

Yes we could, minus the extra space needed. Why oh why!! IDE … i can see myself living with it for a while longer. There’s still many devices that use IDE out there … it would only make it more difficult to stop production. I’m still disgruntled the M2N8-VMX only had one IDE port, but I’m not dead yet. Only advantage I see in SATA is slimmer cables, NCQ - not that it would do much.
