possibly because audio editing typically requires a lot of i/o, and they
don't want their software to appear slow. when doing realtime encoding,
you're likely to be cpu-bound. but when you're editing on a system with a
slow disk, every cut and paste can take seemingly forever, especially if
the software is maintaining an undo capability.
regardless, a faster disk (and cpu, and more memory, etc) is always
better, and the suggestion to stay defragmented is a good one, at
least on windows systems. it doesn't appear to be an issue on *nix.
