I have an older Thinkpad which I am considering to convert to a dual booting Windows 7 and Haiku. This is a shared family system and the idea is to have Haiku installed for exposure/training purposes.
In preparation for this process, I am considering upgrading the current hard drive to a larger hybrid hard drive - essentially a practical compromise on capacity, cost, and speed of access.
As I understand the workings of these hybrid hard drive is that the 8 GB or so of flash memory is acting as a fast cache. However, I am unsure if the caching is done by the drive it-self or by the operating system.
Anyways, is there anyone who has Haiku installed on such a drive - in a single or dual boot configuration? If so, is there an advantage (or disadvantage) for Haiku?
