    The whole confusion is - as usual - because of a confusing use of words. For me, sticks go into a USB port and Dimms are RAM. But that happens often - Drive is another prominent example. For some it is a physical disk and others use it for partitions. Even M$ is not clean on that.

    I've been into computers since around 1981, and RAM has always been referred to sticks. The thingies that go into a USB port are jump drives, thumb drives, flash drives, or just plain USB drives, but I've never seen them referred to as sticks.
