Reading specifications of intel's SSD 320 line at the following link:


states in section 2.3 Reliability that for 160GB drive the write
endurance is 15TB, which gives about 94 full overwrite cycles. Not
that much in my eyes.

The point, however, is not whether the SSD in question will last 94 or
100 overwrites, but whether Debian's packaging system is not causing
too much unneccessary write overhead.
