    Ubuntu and Solid State Disk

    So I just bought a intel x25-m gen2 80GB SSD drive (Should arrive in a couple of days from buy.com) and I am trying to figure out which Operating System to load on it.

    NOTE: Please don't spam the thread with unsupported claims like "Ubuntu is better and windows sucks".

    So far all I know is Windows 7 has great native optimization for SSD unlike vista/XP. But I would love to get Ubuntu on the SSD.

    Only problem is I have no clue how well ubuntu (or linux in general) optimizes an SSD drive.

    If anyone has tips, guides, any kind of useful information (besides voting for your favorite OS) I would be glad to know.

    PS: This SSD installation will be on my ASUS 1005ha netbook.

    I see they do mention that 4GB SSD under their minimum hardware requirements.

    However a little more info on TRIM commands or SSD Optimizers for linux would be nice
