I replaced my wife's Windows system in July, and on the recommendation
of a couple of well-versed people put in an SSD as the system drive, and
retained the HDD for user data. Apparently the old limits on R/W cycles
for SSDs has gone now.

The new system boots and starts apps like lightning, and so far has been
very solid. If I ever build a Linux desktop (I use a notebook), I'll do the same.

[FWIW the system is on Windows 7, I'll decide in a few months whether to
move to 10.]
