Windows likes doing lots and lots and lots of writes. OK, so it also 
does lots and lots of reads, but it's the writes that slower (cheaper) 
MLC SSDs don't like.

Linux is really happy on SSD as long as you use the noatime mount 
option that you obviously know about already. I boot all my mythtv 
front ends off HD but used to have a geexbox machine and it booted in 
about 30 seconds from a very cheap CF card.
