    I am installing Ubuntu on an Acer Aspire One with SSD and a disk is formatted as EXT2. You just need to avoid using a journaling system sp as to limit the records to disk. I have not managed to install openSUSE it never started the installation , So therefore Exit EXT3, ReiserFS, XFS, etc ... system ,You can also try using FAT16 ,

    Apparently, windows had problems because of the granularity of the file system as they are not optimized for SSD. but What about linux? After some personal research, I read that logfs and especially ubifs (supported by nokia) were specially arranged in the linux kernel for SSD.? However, it better to use the good old reiserfs and ext3 ,i think YAFFS2 is a also good system for the board but it remains relatively obscure and is not intended to include Linux
