    Is that a managed, or unmanaged cost? How do you do backup and
    disaster recovery on desktop storage?

    Admittedly, a good compression algorithm could reduce most of what's on
    your desktop to a few napster:// urls and the content of your
    powerpoint, reducing the backup work to a few dozens of megs, but I've
    yet to see that productized.
