    Just a few years ago they noted that some airports still run floppies and windows 98 still... can't imagine that an upgrade would be that difficult or costly, but hey... capitalism just acts when there is either more money to be made, or a potentially costly lawsuit on the horizon...

    Yeah. But M8ty you clearly have not thought this through.
    Just think what would happen to the speed of the trains using an SSD. :rolleyes::p

    They dont need to run full speed, a buffer between them would solve signal incompatibility.

    edit
    Haha, I getcha now, cant have them derailing!

    (I thought you had misspelled trans(fer) as "trains" and were talking about a data speed mismatch.
    But then figured you're more fun than that and I should look again lol :D)
