Works ok,
But take care that:
-either you disable swap,
-or have swap on other (traditinal) device.
-mount without "-atime"..

I've destroyed my first ssd by forgetting it.

	I would definitely go for it. I have been using ssd's in a couple of 
systems for about a year and half. So far I am quite happy
with the performance gain they provide.
