I've always been taught, and know from experience, that as far as performance goes (i.e., speed or raw read/write) RAM is always waaay faster than a mechanical hard-drive. But where do Solid-State Drives fit into this spectrum? Are they faster than mechanical hard-drives? Much faster? Are they as fast as RAM?
Hey everyone,This problem isn't confinded just to Crunchbang but to Debian as well, as I encountered this same issue when installing Debian 7 as well as Crunchbang.On my system I have two hard drives. I have a 60GB SSD which is the primary drive and a 200GB IDE drive which is used to store my work and music files.
