Studies indicated that the best OS or Operating System for Solid-State Drives (SSD) is Windows 2000; not Vista, XP, Linux or Mac OS X.
Studies and subsequent tests on operating systems that have been ran on NAND flash memory also indicated that Windows 2000 is 5-8% faster than later versions of Windows because Windows 2000 doesn’t have any applications running in the background. Windows Vista seems to run faster than XP but there’s one thing that XP can do that Vista could not, XP has the ability to switch off background applications. The pride of Apple lovers, Mac OS X on the other hand, runs a little bit faster than Vista but Linux runs 1-2%% faster than both Mac OS X and Vista.
Well… One thing for certain, we certainly can’t use Windows 2000 on Solid-State Drives/SSDs even though test results have indicated that it is the best OS for Solid-State Drives/SSDs since Microsoft no longer supports it. We just have to hope that future releases of Windows will give us many improvements to equal or eclipse Windows 2000 impressive records.
