One already exists. It's called OS X. The only thing it's missing is TRIM support for SSDs.

OS X automatically defrags on the fly, or something like that. The end result from what I've found is that the user has no idea what the OS is or isn't doing wrt maintenance so has few options besides a reformat when things inevitably get slower. This sits fine with people who "don't want to know".

What we need is an OS which automatically disables these things when the drive is detected as an SSD. Of course this could then cause problems with those hybrid drives...

Is this a good drive?

I like the overall package and it's over $100 cheaper than on Newegg.

Lol, true

Right now, I think I have saved enough pennies for a 4-set of my Michelin A/S Plus tires and this SSD, but trying to be diligent

Windows 7 already disables defrag on SSD drives.

Defrag was set to manual on mine upon install. The service wasn't running, but I had to set it to disabled myself.
