Just out of curiosity, why would someone recommend that? Do a lot of writes/reads to the same blocks 'wear out' SSDs?

I don't have an SSD but I've been mulling over buying one on and off again. It seems to me that the stuff you would absolutely want on the SSD are OS core files, temp files and swap/pagefile... Basically the stuff that low latency/high throughput access too will speed up the OS.
