You are talking the majority of people having under 5Mb/s. A USB flash drive can saturate that, and the ~50MB/s that a VMWare virtual machine is capable of will definitely saturate that. So no, disk I/O is not likely going to be a bottleneck in a home server.
You didn't read what I wrote. This is irrelevant to what I said. I didn't say disk IO is the number one bottle neck in home servers. I said in ALL servers world wide.
If you had read what I wrote, you would have known I said "taking into account all home servers". I understand your need to be right, but you're trying to refute something I didn't even say.
Read it again.
