Will linux support the use of SSD(solid state drive) and recognize it?
as far as i know, it should work just like a regular hard drive
SSD drives have great advantages, but are so expensive, but speed is the key and I do believe many distros are quite compatible, Ubuntu, Gentoo, Suse, etc....
Your post did spark my curiosity, and found this great benchmark article you might find good reading. http://www.linux.com/feature/142658
I would think the new "netbooks" like eeePC and MSI with the SSD are a better choice comparied to a normal laptop.
nice find, tdinc
This is now everyones curiosity as far i know....Any ways thank you for your reply.
Some of the greatest advantage one can expect from a SSD are:
->No Spin Up - Faster statup and operation.
->Fast Disk I/O - Faster Data Access - fast random access for reading, as there is no read/write head to move. Extremely fast write I/O.
->Low Latency - Extremely low read latency times.
->No Noise - a lack of moving parts makes SSDs completely silent.
->High Reliability - High mechanical reliability, as the lack of moving parts almost eliminates the risk of mechanical failure. Also, ability to endure extreme shock, high altitude, vibration and extremes of temperature: once again because there are no moving parts.
