Yes. There is a reason I put "best" in quotes. LOL. But, I would seriously like the Gentoo/Linux community's input.

To date, all of my Gentoo installs have been on HDD. But now I have moved to a laptop that has an SSD, and to boot (no pun intended), it is an Optane box so it also has a secondary SSD to accommodate that. I was given some good info about how to use Optane in another thread but to begin with, I am trying to discern what is a good file system to use for an SSD. On my HDD I was using EXT4 but my Google-Fu keeps returning warnings about Journaling file systems on an SSD?

Also stumbled on this blog...

https://www.maketecheasier.com/best-linux-filesystem-for-ssd/

...which recommends Btrfs.

I like the fact that F2FS is designed specifically for SSD but honestly file systems are out of my wheelhouse.

Thoughts?

For what it is worth I am installing on what will be an AMD64/UEFI Secure Boot box which I would like to use as a Dual Boot Win10/Gentoo box. The disk size is 1TB SSD broken out into 300GB for Win and the rest for Gentoo. And as I mentioned there is a 27GB SSD dedicated to Optane. Looks like Intel implements it as a RAID.

In addition to file system recommendations is there anything specific to an SSD install vs an HDD install that I should watch out for?

Thoughts?

My bad. Not sure how I missed that. I did a search before posting. Anyway, Thanks.
PS Might make a good pinned post.

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Duplicate Threads.
