Being released soon is the Linux 3.8 kernel and one of its many new features is the introduction of the F2FS file-system. The "Flash-Friendly File-System" was developed by Samsung and is showing promise as a new Linux file-system designed around the characteristics of flash-based storage devices. In this article are the first benchmarks of F2FS compared to Btrfs, EXT3, EXT4, XFS, JFS, and ReiserFS file-systems.

The only drive I am running Btrfs on is /home partition on a platter sata drive with AntiX 13 testing. My SSD AntiX 13 Netbook
with the new Kingston 64gig SSD drive is all Ext2, (I be paranoid still). :? With some tweaks to fstab, grub, and /media/ramdisk to limit writes.

all a good thing, though from what i read ext2 does not properly support the trim function which from my understanding was one of the more important features. could you post a link or something from your research as to why you went with ext2? also i found i found a howto to place iceweasel browsing cache and settings in the ramdisk till you close icewasel... suposedly that really helps to keep your ssd writes low. i will try to find the links i had and post back. There was also a howto to change the ssd drive to use the write buffer system at minimal (not a large one to rearrange the data for defragmenting). basically it changed it to one that just writes to the disk, no rearranging... i cannot remember what it was called, but i will find a link on that as well

Ext2 does not have journaling feature.
On flash drives, usb drives, ext2 is recommended, as it doesn’t need to do the over head of journaling.

My notes a little on what I do Dave is in the How to articles in the AntiX wiki

Limiting writes on SSD on eeepc 900.

My isp went down while trying to post. Lets try again.

Well, I will see if I can find it again, but I think I read that ext4, with journaling disabled is "better", which I think means faster.
