SilverStone Raven RV05: We're finally starting to reach a state where case manufacturers are doing away with the seldom-used 5.25-inch drive bays! With computer enthusiasts not often needing optical drives these days in their desktops, SilverStone introduced the Raven RV05 this past summer that does away with all 5.25-inch drive bays (though there is a slim slot-loading optical drive bay slot if you really need it...). With Linux users especially being rarely reliant on optical drives given that most Linux distributions can be installed in a "live USB" manner and most software obtained over the Internet via distribution package repositories, the Raven RV05 we're looking at today should be efficient and attractive to many Linux users.
