New HDD technology for Longhorn

Microsoft and Samsung are pitching a new hard drive technology that uses flash memory in conjunction with the HDD to provide intelligent caching, thus saving battery life and offering shorter boot times.  The new technology, dubbed hybrid hard drive (HHD), uses 1Gbit flash memory which prevents the need for the hard drive to spin continuously. 

"Hybrid drive architecture… is an advancement that will improve the performance and reliability of any computer using the Windows Longhorn operating system," said Tom Phillips, general manager of Microsoft’s Windows group.
