And in big systems, disks often don't use DOS-partitioning, with some modern space manager taking the whole disk and allocating it at normal alignments. Most of the disks I use are that way. I guess those would fare poorly with odd alignment too.
Will the user get to choose between odd alignment and natural alignment? Or is the whole world going to be tuned for personal computers?
