    Windows 7 SSD Optimization

    I have read that Win7 will have some optimizations to allow faster booting and operating off of SSD's. Is this a marketing gimmick or is there something to it?

    It's true. As for more information you should google it.

    I didn't find a ton of useful information when googling it. I was hoping that there was some specific things that pertained to us.

    As the links above indicated, Windows 7 does contain some enhancements for SSD. I urge you to be careful when "optimizing" for SSDs, as you may disable features that are helpful or you'll end up missing or will even decrease your overall performance. A lot of work went into performance in general for Win7.

    Other than disabling Windows components that aren't necessary for car pcs, I haven't found any optimizations to offer measurable performance gains over a standard installation.

    I've found W7 to be STUPID fast, even on a virtual PC, with the usual WinXP carPC optimizations done...
    With that said, it's pretty damn good straight outta the box.

    I have been experimenting with some OSes for my final build, and I'm leaning more and more to Windows 7.

    As said.. it's fast... much faster than Vista, and in my opinion, faster than XP as well.

    What I have not been able to test yet, is it runing on a 1Ghz PicoITX or similar hardware...
    (The tests have been on a 1.6 Mobile Centrino 1Gb Ram).

    Atm I have three strong candidates..
    1. Windows 7
    2. Xp
    3. Tiny Core Linux (fast as H***.... 10Mb core img... but geting frontends and such to work is a pain in the you-know-what).

    Supposedly, from what I've heard, 7 is also supposed to work better than previous OS's on older hardware. Meaning you don't have to have a multi Ghz processor to be able to run it decently. I have yet to try it on something slower though.
