My wife complains that when we run windows inside virtualbox that it's 
slow.  I upgraded her ram to not much effect.

Does anyone have comments on upgrading to an SSD drive under linux?  
Looks like 64gigs are now down around $150.  Lots of chatter about boot 
up times, but I don't care about that.  Do they make that much 
difference in speed for general work?

I've also read something about 'trim' which apparently linux doesn't 
have - should one care?
