Each time you repeat this nonsense, I foster the impression that you are 
not only living in the past but that you are also uneducatable :-(

Would you please be so kind to inform yourself and discover that the SCSI
protocol is one of the most sucessfull protocols and that more and more devices
depend on the SCSI protocol?

Did you ever visit t10.org?

If you did, you woul know that ATA is one of many SCSI tranports (like USB
or 1394 are SCSI transports).

The fact that Linux does not create an universal umbrella for SCSI transports
is a hint that the Linux kernel developers are also living in the past.
Note that all modern OS did this already many years ago.

It seems that you did miss that Linux had it's climac in January 2000.
Linux is on a declining branch since then. If Linux will not stop the current
nonsense that results in ignoring the needs of CD/DVD writing, more and more 
people will move to more user friendly systems.

FreeBSD is slightly growing and Solaris is currently heavily growing.
Both OS are realy nice alternatives for free OS as they both offer more freedom
than Linux (caused by the GPL) does and as both OS listen to the needs of their
