    You are entirely wrong if you think that intel has any obligation to do the job for apple. TRIM is a standardized ATA command and as such, it is the OS that needs to support it. Fact of the matter is, OSX is not correctly implementing ATA right now, until they (Apple) support TRIM.

     

    Furthermore, there are two main reasons why the toolbox exists in the first place:

     

    1. Allow SSDs to be TRIMmed under older OS' that are no longer actively developed and supported (such as windows XP)

    2. Allow SSDs to be TRIMmed when using the (soon obsolete) Intel Matrix Storage Manager, because its driver blocks the TRIM command.

     

    None of the above applies to OSX. Its up to apple to pick up the ball and play it, not the device manufacturers. You can only hope for some goodwill from intel, but you cant expect it.

    In other  words, enabling an OS that's "not correctly implementing ATA" to  support TRIM?

     

    OSX is not correctly implementing ATA right now, until they (Apple) support TRIM.

    I don't buy this line of reasoning, anyway. Normally, it's the manufacturer of a device that provides a driver/software so the device can function in popular operating systems.

    So, Microsoft was responsible for creating the Toolbox and the Intel Storage Matrix Driver? Fascinating.

    When are you planing TRIM support for Mac OS X?

    This question is ASSUMED ANSWERED.

     

    It was answered, but not satisfactorily. The only good answer would be a statement from Intel about upcoming TRIM support for OS X.

    What if you would install drivers to allow Windows to read the HFS+ filesystem. Would SSD Toolbox still not run on the drive?
