If you're using SSD on your Linux system,
what filesystem do you choose?

What's this for ?

You can use Ext4 but if your doing a full install onto it don't forget to leave enough space for a swap partition, if your doing it manually might also make it a primary partition too, about 1 to 1.5 GB should suffice.

I thinking about buying one SSD myself, depending on the information I found I would choose btrfs.

One of the pages I found: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-general-1/filesystem-for-ssd-disk-btrfs-vs-nilfs2-vs-ext4-819240/

Or for ubuntu: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/btrfs
