We did a Steve Jobs style revision job on the SSD section of the guide. There used to be about 15 different Samsung NVMe drives in that section. After 12.0.1 was released many of those drives started having 5-7 minute long boot times. Completely unacceptable. Monterey exposed the TRIM bug in Samsung NVMe drives. Something had to be done.

We cut it down to 4 solid state choices (2 Sata / 2 NVMe) to make it simpler for buyers to choose. The guy who came up with that must be a Zen master or something.

Nope, involved thousands of hours of research, validation testing and painstaking analysis.
