      On a UEFI install, /boot is /boot/efi right? The ESP partition? That can only be FAT32 right?

          On a SSD the storage controller is powerful enough that the difference between ext4 and f2fs isn't so clear-cut.
          I thought that for ext-4-on-ssd you were supposed to turn journalling off to minimize writes. What does that do to ext4 performance?

            I thought that the need to minimize writes on SSDs in a consumer environment ended in 2014 or something. Did you look at the write endurance (both specs and actual testing) of modern SSDs?

            What does that do to ext4 performance?
            on a SSD? nothing noteworthy. I hardly notice any performance difference on CF cards and other devices where you do have to reduce writes.
