Well, if storage requirements double every 18 months, then 1024 PB will be enough to hold them for just shy of a decade, then. :-)

Ext3 for large filesystems

I think I've thrown out the 64 Megabyte 3.5 inch hard disks I bought in the early 80's. It doesn't feel that long ago.

It still amazes me that a single desktop icon on a modern computer takes up about as much RAM as an entire video game console had back in the 80s.

64MB in the early 80s? Those must have cost a pretty penny. I remember 5MB and 10MB disks costing several hundred dollars.
