I think this is the wrong "dimension". It's not "large <--> small" but
rather "dynamic" <--> "static", dynamic meaning that file systems,
networks and other things come and go (and are interdependent).
This dimension is independent from large vs. small: for example, the
old mainframe of yore learnt to pull off the trick of plugging CPUs
and RAM while running (Linux has learnt that pretty recently, AFAIR),
so they were dynamic down to the guts, while the "good ol' PC", with
its hda, hdb, hdc (and if you were well off hdd ;) was a pretty static
beast. With USB, ESATA and (gasp!) bluetooth, OTOH...
Smartphones... dynamic, I'd say.
