I do have trim working on lucid for the record (maverick backport kernel)

Hi pqwoerituytrueiwoq.

It wouldn't hurt, but AFAIK, it was only necessary, or recommended for the first ones. This was the case because when they were a new technology, they had problems like firmware bugs, lack of good drivers for some OS's (XP, and early VISTA), and lack of TRIM support.

Just my thoughts.
