    So: in one news article, lazy switching is bad; in another, it's good.

    Is this one of those "down with the yoof" things where bad is good, and good is also good? :eeek:

    That's the easy one: get people to buy more, make more, volume scales up, fixed costs remain mostly static, per-unit costs go down.

    Optane is already dirt cheap compared to what came before it and has some added benefits thrown in for free like being bootable...
    Before Intel and Micron made it more accessible you had to fork out tens of thousands for specialist products from the likes of Fusion-io to get that kind of latency.
    Will it take a couple more years before it is the normal storage solution in enthusiast circles? Sure, but it isn't like there hasn't been massive progress already.
