Subject Re: SSD Experience (on developer machine)
Date Tue, 23 Aug 2011 09:52:49 GMT
we are probably running out of topic here, but for the record, there is 
also someone lamenting about ssd

http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2011/05/the-hot-crazy-solid-state-drive-scale.html

the underlying point is correct: SSD offer much less re-writes of the 
same "sector" than disk based

so, as far as developer machines are involved, you should go for OSes 
that use the disk efficiently and basically avoid windows (which I think 
is the OS that Jeff Atwood uses): one of my friend W7 keeps on 
reading/writing even when there is no application running, ageing the 
disk too fast imho
