I disagree. Any reads from the OS drive are going to be much faster. That said, there isn't much beyond the EPG info and recording thumbnails that actually gets read from the OS drive. However, even with the little bit of data that WMC needs from the OS drive, there is a small gain in WMC's performance when an SSD is used as the OS drive. Obviously the bigger the EPG and the more thumbnails that need to be loaded, the bigger the performance gain over a HDD. But is it something to scream about? No. The real gain with an SSD comes from other applications....the OS itself (such as during boot) and any other applications that may be reading data from the SSD.
