No, it's a really practical question.  Overall, would CF operating as 
in the new primary mass storage device a system that was floppy-only, 
provide the same service life as a floppy?  Think machine tools, 
textile equipment, CNC tools, lab equipment, etc.

What's the failure mode of CF?  Is it "all at once" or "bits and 
pieces" like a floppy?
