Linux on SSDs

I would like to use RedHat or Ubuntu with an SSD.
But I also have the choice to use Windows 7.

Would it possible be better to use Windows 7?

Did Microsoft possible implement things in Windows 7 which the openSource community has not yet implemented in Linux?

Especially thinkng about fewer writes to the disk and things like that.

lookup TRIM you might find the information you are looking for.

Well I know TRIM is supported by Linux since 2.6.33 (Feb 2010)

I am just wondering if Windows 7 does more that Linux maybe does not.
Especially thinking about writing less to the disk and things like that.

I don't believe so, the main thing is TRIM. If Linux supports TRIM now then you should be fine with that. Use whatever OS you feel the most comfortable with.
