It doesn't matter, you can install either OS on that solid state drive. Both OS harvest the SSD potential well. At last it comes down to you, install win 8 if you like the new tabbed interface or the old win 7 interface.

thanks! but i just want to ask, we do all know that TRIM feature of this kind of SSD is only for Win7, i dont have any idea if win8 is capable of enabling the TRIM feature.. fyi trim is very important in SSD nowadays...hope you have any ideas or suggestions..

WIndows 8 doesn't need trim, it optimizes the SSD automatically?

wow is that true? i'm searching this kind of tweak for awhile.. other than this link do you have another one? i do believe in win7 u must disable prefecting and defragmentation, etc, but win8 specifically in the link you gave: you can apply do defrag & prefecthing, can you show me a proof? or another links that proves it :)
