Big Blue Responds

Or at least an IBM’er responds.
Here’s the link from Tony Pearson. Thanks, Tony.

I’m currently enjoying a post-prandial Ouzo, so I’ll hold off on commenting.

And your comments are welcome. Ouzo or not.

Oh, dear – while Tony doesn’t seem to be parrying vigorously (as Seagate, Hitachi, and Chunk were doing), his contribution sounds more like IBM marketing than the kind of detailed, technical response one might have hoped for (‘Maxstore’? the suggestion that 43% of the failed disks in the CMU study were replaced for reasons similar to those that cause people to trade in perfectly functional cars? well, he *is* a manager, and a marketing one at that, so perhaps we shouldn’t expect more).

I’ll add a comment about Chuck in the post below devoted to him.
