Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have set up a dual-boot/dual-disk machine at work with Windows 7 installed on a 1 TB HDD and a totally separate Ubuntu 12.04 installation on a 512 GB SSD. I've been advised by a couple of competing sources that there are certain things you can do to optimize an OS for an SSD, but I'd like to make sure that the changes I make to the system are appropriate for one using both an HDD and an SSD. Any advice on what I should do to make things better or if my setup is wrong to begin with?
