    Linux is lacking (or some distribution was lacking as of January 2014) a driver for the Thinkpad 2x2 BGN+BT 4.0 (some kind of realtek chipset) in T440. Do I pretend that Linux doesn't support common...

    I don't care. I don't even care how it works. It's a black box like any other SATA storage device. Any HDD I connect works without me having to do anything special and I have this reasonable...

    That's not what I meant. If you have to format your brand new SSD so that it performs within spec as you suggest, then that's what sucks about the technology (or your drive). Since any HDD will work...

    If that's really true, SSD technology sucks (or at least that particular drive). The original poster also showed a benchmark of an HDD which points to problems elsewhere (very likely the disk...

    Could you run the same test with an HDD? I bet its the disk controller ... or more precisely, the driver that drives it. FreeBSD prints out the read/write speed of each disk on dmesg. Can you check...

    Great to hear! I bet FreeBSD ports are having similar success. I use poudriere these days to build packages for my netbook (which requires KMS) and I think only 1 or 2 of all my packages actually...

    I could care less about your 25 years of experience with UNIX. I'll translate some of your responses for you (obviously exaggerated, sorry):

    I'm more experienced, so therefore I'm right.
