I am currently running kTorrent to "host" the openSUSE DVD and the live version. I noticed it actually does some writing to disk, as well as reading of course.

Just from watching conky it looks like it writes an average of 20K a second on my ~/ partition and about 3K per second on my /root partition.

Questions:

1) Is there any harm to wearing out an SSD from this usage on my ~/ or /root partition?

I am sure I can crunch the raw math/bits but I thought maybe someone else has already done it or has a good general idea.
