SSD About … MustHave ;-)

No SWAP Partition, Journaling Filesystems, … on a SSD? December 7, 2008 I’m going to get an Asus Eee PC 901go, which has a Solid State Disk (SSD) instead of a normal hard disk (HD).

I soon started to look at the best way to install my Kubuntu and I found following recommendations copy and pasted on various sites:
