    I don't defrag nearly often enough.

    Of course, if you use a nicely journaled file system like, oh, say fs3 in Linux, defragging isn't necessary. ;)

    All I know about Linux is, penicillin won't touch it. Or so I've been told.

    SSD's are for booting

    har that depends

    I have ten year old spinny drives here that still work
    but are too small and slow to use.

    There are new considerations with SSD drives
    that require that they are used properly.

    If you observe the proper use guidelines they will
    last as long as a regular drive.

    Once you've experienced the speed of an SSD drive
    you will be spoiled forever!
