[Herb Sevush] "[Chris Harlan] " a move to LTO for archiving "

Having started the LTO process for myself, the one thing I will say is that there is very little standardization with this technology. I'm using BRU archiving software, which runs on Mac and Linux. This means if you have a PC system, or id you don't have the right software, you can't read my files. Until something like LTFS becomes the defacto standard, LTO5 will not replace videotape. A successful archiving standard requires that any tape can be played on any machine.

Oh, yeah. I'm still a tape advocate. It was just tough to be one when you couldn't get any.
