Hi,

Is anyone using SSD drives on freeBSD server systems?

I'm attracted by the performance increases i've seen on both my desktops 
and laptops (quite amazing and easy upgrade if you've not tried)..

I see from here     
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRIM#Operating_system_and_SSD_support
that full TRIM support only comes in 8.2,

I'd be interested to here peoples opinions on best uses for SSD, general 
purpose applications such as databases , webservers etc will benefit 
obviously,

but i'm also  curious as to disk intensive applications such as mailq's, 
spamassassin etc?  (I presume here the lack of TRIM may degrade 
performance rapidly?)

thanks
Paul.
