Default Newbie with OSX - 04-01-2009, 04:07 PM

I may try installing OSX once my mini 9 arrives and I have a few questions:
- AFAIK the OSX file system is journaled. Is it ok on the SSD disk or will it wear it out. I'd use ext3 on linux since I had corruption problems with ext2 a few times.
- Can spotlight be disabled? It should write a lot on the hard disk too.
- Does suspend/resume work on the OEM 64 Dell disk? I read there were problems with non runcore disk but it might be solved already. I couldn't find an updated answer for that.
Thanks in advance

You can disable Spotlight as well... but after the initial indexing, Spotlight does not really get in the way (unless you actually use it for something) :lol:
