On the other hand, many vendors offer flash memory with a PCI interface and complete specs on that interface.
I take this back. I remember having a conversation recently about this and while there are PCI flash memory devices available, and they're usable on Linux, apparently the interface protocol is not in fact specified and people use them on Linux via object code only device drivers.
These device drivers present a Linux block device interface, which is almost as bad as SATA, in that it is designed for disk drives.
