Does it really matter? I mean, how often are you rebooting your router
anyway (apart from during the testing stages, obviously, and most changes
through the interface are applied without a complete reboot). The only
occasions my m0n0 box gets restarted are software updates (sorry, still
can't manage to call it "firmware" ;-) ) and power outages.
I'd take the advantages of CF over an HDD any day of the week over the speed
advantages of the HDD.
