From The Register: "The Serial ATA working group, charged with replacing clumsy parallel ribbons as
the mass storage interface inside PCs, says it has completed version 1.0 of the
specification. Publication had been mooted for 10 October, but the public version
now ought to be available for comment by the end of the year.
The only OS with representation on the group is Linux, and Redmond is a notable
absentee - although sources say that it's now very keen to join. When it does, it
won't have input to the first specification."
