See Crucial MX300 525GB SATA 2.5 Inch Internal Solid State Drive – CT525MX300SSD1Yes, it’s looking like SSD have matured sufficiently for me to begin using them. I notice quite a few users on Amazon are using them to compensate for the slowing down of That Other OS. I don’t have that problem, thanks to Debian GNU/Linux, but I still could do without the seek times and transfer-rates of spinning discs for loading software and temporary data. I still see a role indefinitely for spinning discs with huge data. There cost still rules. Now, though, even ordinary consumers are using SSD with few problems. Why not me?

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
