At the moment, only win7 and modern Linux releases support trim. I wonder if I can benefit from trim on vista and server 2003/2008R1. As far as I can see, Intel for example offers a "Solid-State Drive Optimizer" for legacy OS, too.
1) 350 pts. What about other brands? Kingston, Samsung, ... maybe someone can link tools of a few of those. Best would be to have a tool that does not care what make or model.
2) 150 pts. (if available) Can anyone link a site that offers a table with various SSD models and answers the question "does it support trim and if yes, from what firmware revision on?" - thing is, some manufacturers don't offer information on their own drives (try to find info on MMCRE32G5MSP from Samsung for example).
