I've been running SCSI on PC's (where I work) for as long as I can
remember (at least since 2920, before that we were strictly UNIX
workstations - HP, SGI, Sun). I actually tried the 2940 on my system
since I had one laying around and it ate the PCI bus. At work I've gone
away from SCSI for three reasons - first is cost, second is that the
speed difference isn't very much anymore, third is that you can't get
SCSI in Djibouti (or Honolulu for that matter). I work with ship and
airborne data collection/processing systems. We've had problems getting
SCSI drives anywhere but the states (or Singapore, although I had
problems there once - I couldn't find anything old ;-) Now we're
starting to switch to SATA for the same reason.
