And, for eighty bucks more you can get a small (256GB) SSD mounted
as /, put nothing on it but /usr and /opt and possibly /boot, formatted
mbr, putting everything else on a UEFI 3TB disk, and booting to the
SSD. I did this on my daily driver, although unfortunately one of my
big disks was a WD green, and you guys were right: There's too much
latency with those things to use as a workstation disk. When I do :s in
Vim, it takes a half a second to complete, and that's disturbing. In a
few months I'll replace it with a WD black.
