Intel SSD Series 30/311 PCIe Questions

Both these SSD's are available in a compact size. Intel labels the small size, mSATA, and indicates it uses a PCIe mini-connector. These seem to be designed for small all-in-one systems and not desk top PC's. However, there are significant advantages to having the hard drive connected to the PCIe bus. See recent test by Tom's Hardware,,2952.html .

A reference to Intel's design can be found on their website: , down the right-hand side of the page.

I have to assume that the Intel series 310/311 are not meant to be plugged into a motherboard PCIe slot, because there is no discussion of the possibilities. However, it seems like a grand idea. Are there software issues, particularly Linux OS issues, or is this something we can look forward to from Intel in the future?

Ignorance is a terrible thing. Would someone pour some daylight on this issue for me?

Thanks in Advance:
