    Is it real that now we dont have to really use the option of safely Remove Hardware ?
    What about the safety of the drive or gadget that we are using

    I second this. I've read about it, but I don't believe that it has been implemented as of yet

    While this is true for now, after the above mentioned implementation it will become redundant. As is stands not many people actually worry about 'safely removing' hardware. I'll admit that 2 out of 10 times I just remove my thumbdrives without actually taking the time to do a few extra clicks lol

    Sometimes, I'm forced to. I do the safely remove device, and it gets stopped by the OS claiming that it's still in use. I for one will welcome this.

    I never worried about "safely removing hardware". I just pulled it out 10 out of 10 times! I am surprised that anyone regularly went through the steps to do it "safely".

    I run a VM with the vm disk on external. I need to make sure it's all shut down properly before removing lol

    While I don't "eject" a USB drive, I do make sure that it is finished writing. I think that's basically what "safely removing" does anyway; checks to make sure there's no reading or writing going on.

    How well does this work? I would think it would be a bit slow.

    For my purposes on a USB3.1 port, it's pretty fine. My external ssd is actually a bit faster than my laptop.

    I use it for demo environments baseline... To check back on oob functionality when compared to developed instances

    Agreed (thanks for confirming, that I'm not super weird)
