    EXT4 is not compatible with SSDs? O_o It works great on my OCZ, or do I miss something?

    Question

    Yeah, what's wrong with EXT4 on SSD's? I have it on mine, still running smoothly. I even have it on a USB stick, works perfectly.

    EXT4 + SSD user here, no issues either.

    I think he's talking about the TRIM command maybe (I was under the impression that ext4 supports it though)? Or perhaps optimizations specifically for the SSD (to avoid multiple rewrites or something)?

    Is it that much of a big deal?
