I'm reading a lot about running an OS off a flashdrive and needing fast speeds. I think I can run Windows flavors in a VM under something Linux like Mint. Do modern flashdrives use TRIM, like SSDs, to improve longevity? Any way you could run an OS off a flashdrive that uses a ramdisk so less writes?
Also, I think if I get a drive w/ at least 100 MB/s read and write I'll be alright. But some talk about needing fast 'sequential' something or other (writes?). Any guidance would be appreciated.
