SSD icon should be drawn, absolutely. But not at the exclusion of
traditional HDs. It'll be years yet before SSDs are the standard. For
now, we need both, I think.

Regarding the icon provided in this thread, I think it's beautiful.
Although: is it too geeky for non-computer people? Will it look
"broken" or "incomplete" and therefore further damn Ubuntu/Linux's
perception by the average user?
