    Like any drive, use the Disk Utility to format it.

    The Intel SRT is Windows only.

    Many that use Ubuntu more than Windows just turn SRT off and install Ubuntu onto the SSD. That is usually large enough to be a / (root) with /home or data on rotating drive.
    Those that like Windows turn it back on after installing Ubuntu. A few with larger SSDs seemed to install Ubuntu on SSD and re-enable SRT as that does not use a lot to cache Windows. Not sure if it is adjustable or not?
