Question Can Fedora treat SSD's better than Windows?

With Fedora's latest claims about their better treatment of SSD's, was wondering if it is better or just on par with what Windows already does?

-----

Sidenote: is Fedora is to Redhat like Chrome to Google?

There are a lot of variables in play here not least of which is the quality standard of the drive you install. It also depends on how much software you have making read/write cycles and how often. Suffice to say using anything other than Fedora is hardly likely to affect the lifespan of your drive to any noticeable extent. In any case this is where Clonezilla is the tool everyone should have and use on a regular basis.

This explains the relationship between Fedora and Redhat.

Of the community based Redhat re-writes Alma promises the closest relationship and with a lot of commercial backing is now marching up the popularity charts. CentOS is still around of course, Rocky Linux is trying to make an impact without too much success but Springdale from Princeton university is the oldest and IMO still the best option.

And discovered this... to add IBM ownership of Redhat to his list:
