Re: SSD for Dummies Quick Question

Re: SSD for Dummies Quick Question

odo5435: That really doesn't help, and isn't relevant to my problem. I'm on my fifth regular laptop hard drive and I'm tired of dealing with last year's factory problems. I got an SSD to get around the massive manufacturing defects still going around.

My division uses various linux distros as desktops. I'm not in charge, but I've been tasked with figuring out how to setup a way for us to dynamically update our desktops without having to use aptitude through tsocks.
