Re: Harddrive advice
I could see using an ssd for the linux root directory, but won't windows run down an ssd quickly because of the (comparatively) frequent writes? I don't want to have to replace the root drive in only a few years.
As I understand it, an ssd is very good for something that gets written once and read often after that, but bad for something that gets written often.
Edit: Also, I'll mostly be using it for sequential read/write, so ssd is not that much of a benefit, as I understand it.
Edit: With most (all?) web browsers on linux, all the temporary internet files are put in the home directory, so I suppose if I use chrome/ff only on windows, then I don't have to worry much about windows (via internet explorer) running down the drive?
