I doubt his internet connection is fast enough to be able to download enough data for the caching to amount to a significant amount of writes.

Marco is wrong. Secure Erase does not write any data to the SSD.

comment How to minimize Modern UI/Metro apps in Windows 8?
It is a bit of a jarring transition. But, truth to be told, the Mordern UI/Metro apps are designed for 10in screen and touching. They don't make any sense on a big desktop computer with a mouse and keyboard. The other side of the coin is the desktop, which is a pain to use with fingers. So the usage bifurcates into only Modern UI/Metro apps on Windows tablets and only desktop applications on normal desktop and laptop computers.

comment How to minimize Modern UI/Metro apps in Windows 8?
Visual Studio 2012 is a normal desktop application, and works much the same on W8 as on W7. The question is about Modern UI/Metro app, which are a completely new class of applications in Windows 8 which run outside the desktop.
