Secure Erase your SSD

Before you crack a big smile, let me remind you what Ben Parker said to Peter: ???With Great Power comes Great Responsibility???. In other words, this hell-of-a-speed data flow comes with a price – its limited lifespan. If you are careless enough, then your brand-new Vertex 4 SSD will probably degrade its perforamance and kiss its speed goodbye. Thus, you need to be well-informed about whether you should enable or not certain ???hacks??? to your Linux distribution. The most common mistake that new SSD users tend to make is installing a new Linux distro or replacing the current one without secure erase it first.
