I cloned my old conventional 160 GB hard drive onto a new Intel X25-M
SSD using gparted. In doing so, the new partitions ended up being ext3
instead of ext4.
The performance improvement is dramatic. It boots super fast. Even
Evolution, which became a lethargic dog with the upgrade to F13, is
snappy. Its amazing how fast Firefox and Open Office Writer open.
Life is good.
I have not done any disk optimizations whatsoever. Whatever the
defaults are, that is what I am running.
I did not perform any before and after tests, but I still have my old
harddrive as a backup. I could always swap it in and run some tests if
they are needed.
