But who are we to judge him, as to why he asks the question?

I would want to know this myself, for that matter since I'm
experimenting with embedded PC's, running Linux on a flash disk, which
has limited write cycles. Does that make me a school kid with an
assignment? No. Maybe. Yes. How do you know how old I am, or what my
agenda is?

I am out of school, by the way and don't need to write stupit exams to
prove my experience or knowledge either. But, I don't know everything,
and it's many times easier to ask a question to a group of people who
might have already stumbled upon the same thing that I'm trying out
for the first time :)
