Which filesystem works best with SSD?

here are some infos:
Solid-state drive: File systems suitable for SSDs
They state that ext4 is a safe choice.
From Debian-wiki:
Use the ext4 filesytem (the most mature filesystem) unless you have reason not to.

F2FS but do not have the bootloader that manage this filesystem, so ext4 for now it is the better choice

Since that time, I have formatted the ssd of my toshiba z930 laptop. 8)

I use ext2. Don't ask me why, I do not remember. :oops:

Ext2 is dangerous doesn't have journaling.
In case of improper shutdown can lead to serious errors.

I take your word.

Personnaly I keep my important data out of the computer on an external hdd or on a big usb key.

In the last two years, though I had to close my computer because of porteus freezing many times, there seemed to be no problem. After two years, I had never some problem to reboot. In the worst cases my changes folder became corrupted.

It seems I am lucky.
