That's absolutely right, but for a quick and dirty setup where performance
isn't important it's a nice solution (e.g. a modem/isdn router, or a
public terminal for database-access). It's a bulletproof setup where
people can even slam the table without causing a headcrash :-)
And they even can't steal the disc.
