*Shrug* What's so revolutionary about that? I had an Anamartic 128MB SCSI RAM wafer-drive six or seven years ago. Windows 3.x ran real fast when you had all the executables and swap file on a SCSI drive with microsecond access time.

Shame about the $20,000+ price-tag... apparently they mostly sold them as swap disks for VAXes and the like, because at the time that was a small fraction of the cost of buying a 128MB RAM upgrade for those machines.
