    I saw this when they were announcing it a couple of months back. It's insane.

      It's going to take at least 10 years for us to see it here. (T-T )

        Ubuntu full install download in 2 min (700+ MB) ... that is just fscking awesome. For you entertainment phreaks, that's like streaming Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Youtube ... simultaneously ... in HD.

            Yes, but it still isn't worth living in Kansas City. I promise you.

              That's why we're saying it needs to be available everywhere.

                        Meh. When we get that kind of speed anywhere else, files (and things) will just be larger than what they are right now and it will just feel like the same old laggyness.

                          At those speeds, you can download actual prostitutes from the internet ... boobs, STDs and their 10" stilettos ....

                              Fun part is anything speedier and you'd require SSDs to be able to take full advantage of it unless your files were small enough to be cached to memory while they are written on disk. XD
