Submission + - How to tweak Linux for an SSD

Shadow7789 writes: I am getting a SSD-based netbook in the near future, and the first thing I want to do when I get it is to reformat it with Linux.

What kind of tweaks can I make to ensure I get the most performance and longevity out of my drive? Is there a particular filesystem that is best? What about swap? Cache? Any other tweaks that I can make to ensure that my SSD is being best utilized?
