Ha! Fallen for that old swizz have you?

On any fresh installation of openSUSE, going back to the 9.x or 10.x series,
I've found that it's 'nippy' at first, but it doesn't take long
before the nips nip off down the pub and can't be arsed any more. I don't
know what it is that slowly bogs the system down in a
Windows-esque way, but it never stays nippy for long.

However, since I upgraded my main laptop with an SSD, that's done more than
anything else to improve performance, to such an extent that I
can no longer judge nippiness so well as launching programs only takes a
jiffy.

Jiffy in England has many connotations. Let's not go there.

Some Linux file systems are more prone to fragmentation that we like to
believe.
I've noticed this since Opensuse deprecated Riserfs.
My next install (any day now) is going to be btrfs.

I stayed with EXT4 for 13.2 RC1 , I'm personally planing to stay with
EXT for the foreseeable future. EXT 3 and 4 have worked out well for
me and BTRFS is still in its infancy as far a I am concerned.
