I am in the Lubuntu dev chat at the moment and also browsing the Lubuntu seed file. A package reminded me of an article I saw 'the other day' and thought about sharing at the time. Something else distracted me, probably a squirrel, and I never shared it.

I don't know of anything but laptops that used the PCMCIA format, but I suppose there was nothing stopping desktops from using the tech? So, that's why there's the question mark in the title.

I recall one such device that managed to wedge a modem (RJ11?) into the slot but it had a wire that came out of it, as memory suggests.

Anyhow, users of the tech will be left behind eventually. It's sooner rather than later, as some of the drivers are being culled already.
