today most SSD drives internally act as if they are a raid set, so saying that in 5 years that RAID will be a common desktop/laptop feature is actually a fair statement.

as for multiple thread writing to it, that's more common than you think as well (media player streaming, desktop environment saving state, word processor saving state, spreadsheet saving state, .... )

"today most SSD drives internally act as if they are a raid set"

Maybe. But SSD drives act, externally, as 1 drive. A single drive with excellent seek time and a sometimes very good data rate. If the drive can do parallelization of a single stream of data that means the FS and block i/o layers don't have to be so fancy. +1 for EXT4.

Regarding multiple threads writing... do you really think media player streaming and word processor saving state is going to require a half gig a second via 5+ threads for extended periods in the near future? If so, I think I'll go dust off my TV and typewriter. +1 for Magnavox and Royal.
