So I'm aware that it isn't recommended to run a full Ubuntu install on USB sticks due to the limited read/write cycles as compared to traditional SSDs or hard disks, and the USB connection limits write speeds etc..
I just wanted to know if this applies to newer drives like the one listed above, The read speed is 130mb/s so it's faster than traditional hard drives.
But I'm unsure about the longevity I can get from this newer USB flash
Is it OK to run a full Ubuntu install from it?
I currently have two windows OS installs on my dedicated hard drive, this is why I rather run Ubuntu straight off my USB.. It's quickly becoming my default OS .
I use ms office web apps when I need to edit docx, deezer.com for music, and overall Ubuntu proves to be pretty awesome.
I game on windows 8.1 and run my piano software on Windows.
