How can I make good use of a USB SSD drive connected to the Pi?

For instance, can I start from the SD card and then hand over everything
to the SSD drive? From googling it does look like it is possible.



Yes, but....

The but being that it's still USB attached and won't be nearly as fast
as you expect.


Subscribed to the list now...

I am not concerned about the performance, it is the wear.

So, how do one load the OS from the SSD? I suppose I could boot the OS
from the SD card and place most other filesystems on the SSD but would
prefer to load the OS from the SSD drive.

Have a feeling the mysterious /boot/msdos/config.txt is involved but I
fail to locate any documentation, if there is one?
