Default Linux on SSDs

Hi

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.

Thanks

Thorsten

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.
