    UBUNTU with Windows XP and SSD TRIM

    My existing PC is Windows XP and is very slow. I am thinking of replacing it with one containing SSD. Since I have a lot of data/applications that are for XP I expect some of them would not run under Windows 7/8.

    I assume I can install Windows XP in a virtual box and run it under UBUNTU without problems. The increase in memory and CPU capability should improve load times. To reduce it further I could install it on SSD. As Windows XP does not handle TRIM, but UBUNTU does will TRIM be enable with this configuration?

    Not really needed as the XP VM would be a single file on the SSD.

    It would get trimmed (if trim is enabled on the host) if you decided to shrink the VM volume.

    I have done a bit more googling and it looks lide it would be better to run it on an HDD.
