    is it inexpensive or independent ??

    this has probaly been asked a millon and two times but.....
    My book say's "redundent array of inexpencive disks"
    I say "redundent array of independent disks"
    my techer says "you'll find out on the test"

    as we have found the book to be outdated before- what say's geneal opion? I have found more than one reference to both !

    independent is right. say inexpensive on your test to satisfy your dimwitted teacher.

    funny thing is a lot of teachers teach moore's law as "every 18 months (or 2 years), the speed of something will double." Moore's law is actually very different. A piece of ecandy to the first one who gets it right!

    Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks.

    Coined in 1987 by UC Berkeley researchers to describe RAID levels 1 through 5.

    Definitely "inexpensive," although that's not the what they seem to be....

    Yes.

    It's independent or inexpensive depending on which books you read.

    Rather like DVD - originally Digital Video Disk, now Digital Versatile Disk.

    yep.

    moore's law states that the amount of transistors you can pack into a given space will double every 2 years (or 18 months).
