Hi David,

I've only used a single SSD on my Xubuntu systems.  As long as you protect
it from being written to more than necessary, it's fine.  On an ancient
system running Xubuntu 2010 LTS with 1 GB of memory (the max) and a 30GB
SSD, I can go from cold start to on the internet in 15 secs!

My main question to you would be to ask why you don't just use SSD(s).  I
recently bought a brand new 128GB one for an iPod for GBP48 on eBay.  I'm
pretty sure that ordinary ones are considerably less per GB.

10 years ago, when I bought the 30GB one for my ancient laptop (purely run
as a toy and designed in the last century!), it cost me £30 second-hand,
which hardly broke the bank *then*.

Still horses for courses as they say.
