    SubjectDisk is cheap?

    Perhaps a more convincing argument may be that in embedded devices,
    disk as well as memory and CPU power are _not_ cheap.

    The more resources Linux requires, the less are it's chances of being
    accepted as a viable alternative in embedded systems.

    That would be _a_ _lot_ for an embedded system!
