early Xmas present - Intel SSD arrived

So the attendee's gift at Kernel Summit this year was an Intel X-25M 80G SSD. However as they had only just launched while we were at Kernel Summit, Intel couldn't get supplies to give them away.

So I a package today and lo and behold its got my SSD in it!!

So I've no real idea what I'm going to do with it, I have no laptop useful enough to support such a thing, so I've put it
into my desktop in the office for now. I suppose I can migrate all my git trees to it.

Any suggestions for what I should store on it? time for a new laptop sometime next year I suppose :-)

[update- lots of sugggestions to use it for my root partition, however my desktop machine boots rarely and has 6GB
of RAM, so it keeps gcc/firefox/openoffice in cache most of the time. So I suspect I really should use it for
my git trees where I spend a lot of time checking out and merging trees]
