SSDs are the way to go!

I bought an intel X25-M SSD last week and it does make a *big* difference! It is faster, develops less noise and heat and the battery lasts longer.

I am using it with a lenovo thinkpad t410 laptop running Ubuntu 10.10 and it’s just great!

For what it’s worth I am running a pretty recent kernel in conjunction with the Ubuntu maverick userland. Not sure how well the normal 2.6.35 kernel supports SSDs.

Anyway, SSDs are the way to go ๐Ÿ™‚


The world has changed

Whether for the better or the worse is left as an exercise to the reader but it definitely has changed.

The other day I was whining diffusely about the breakage of my new lenovo thinkpad t410. A day later I get a response. And a useful one at that!

Think about it! When did we ever have this before? Random people from a different continent taking note of one’s utterances and sharing their knowledge?

Just in case you missed it, the world has changed. And in this particular case I quite like it ๐Ÿ™‚
