I wanna know how SSD friendly ubuntu 11.04 is. Does it use TRIM by default? If not can someone show me how to enable it?

Yes, TRIM is supported in recent kernels, I think from 10.10 and definitely in 11.04.

Here's a reasonable guide if you wanted to read further:

Thank you shamrock_uk. I'm going to install it on my SSD then.
