I came across this very interesting thread on a related mailing  list
that I thought would be quite relevant to those of us using Dell
hardware. Apparently Dell has started hardware-blocking hard-drives
that are not "Dell certified".


Don't get mad at me, Dell; I believe the larger public interest
outweighs any reluctance on my part to name vendor names.

Conflict of interest statement: I've been very annoyed by Dell
tech-support last week. I'm prejudiced.
