Heh, heh - I meant "feature" as in the infamous Bill Gates interview
with the German technology magazine, wherein he claimed that Windows
has no bugs, only features that people do not understand.  (You can't
make this stuff up....)

The most interesting part to me is that the disk in question is a
fixed drive in the case.  On my CentOS boxes and laptops, these NEVER
show up on the desktop (why would they?), only the removable media.

Thanks, including for the chuckle.
