Infinitely better in the sense that a CF can
replace a fixed disk as primary working storage.

I've had two failures in about two years of use.
In both cases the CF could be reformatted;
then continued to operate with no problem.
cg> I couldn't buy IDE-to-flash-card-adaptors here,
You don't need to buy the adapter and make the
parts to mount it as I did. At least one company
sells adapters ready to install. You can have
them sent by mail?
Of course, most view this arrangement as obsolete.
With Aos you can connect USB flash storage. Still,
CF is faster according to my test.

What happened to Ethernet and FTP?
