CPU load is considerably higher, though. No good FS for CPU-intensive tasks.
It's probably a good idea to move a CPU into hard drives anyway -- though it
will need a different interconnect -- especially given that future storage is
solid-state and hence low-latency.

What good are file systems for MRAM-based solid-state machines anyway? OO/GC
is good enough for that.
