So I joined LWN.net just so I could comment on this post. First off as a
new timer to the hardware end of things, this post was not only informative
but available to new readers. I'm more curious now about memory handling
than ever before.
As a long time coder, my memory concerns ended with mallocs/frees/
news/deletes and eventually I just forgot them inside of other high data
structures that cleaned themselves up when out of scope.
Do you think it would be possible to write something similar up for NTFS or
other formats? Is this article strictly unix centric so that windows SSD
formats have their own particulars. I'd love to enhance a goofy squidoo
lens I wrote up about SSDs a while back with REAL detailed information.
