The reason why I still use XP is precisely for scenarios like the revodrive. TRIM hides MANY sins. XP is a worst case scenario for SSDs. It removes TRIM from the equation and gives a good look at the real workings of the controller(s) and the pros and cons of its design. I may opt for a AMD rig as their "issues" with TRIM may just make it the NEXT gen's "worst case scenario".
I didn't know there were AMD problems, could you elaborate?
