Really? How many WD drives have you had fail that quick? I've been using primarily WD for over 10 years (also used Maxtor, Seagate, Samsung and IBM / Hitachi during that time) and I've only had 1 of the WD drives start to fail (on SMART at least) while others have over 6 years uptime. Maxtor / Samsung just didn't impress with either speed or noise, IBM / Hitachi have the deathstar range and Seagate tended to write data in a manner designed to fragment a drives contents as much as possible. As a result I've stayed with WD, however I fear Hitachi could easily bring their standard of drives down.
Because it'll force decisions to be made based on a pesons gender. That's sexist. Be it supposed positive sexism or whatever. Don't get me wrong, I suspect a lot of the decisions are made for the wrong reasons at this point anyway and I find it far worse that anyone should need to consider putting something like this forward in the first place.
