Wester Digital announces End Of Life on PATA(IDE) Drives – 12/03/2013

WD Announces PATA End-Of-Life
Not much to say about this but Western Digital announced the end of life on PATA drives listed below. Why is this an issue, for most it is not but if you have older equipment that requires these drives the future may be short.  IDE/PATA drives have been around for a long time and probably need to be retired but this is just a wake up call.  Get some new hardware
