Just to share my experience following Dave's last update.

I have a SSD with 3 partitions
1 - ArcaOS boot partition
2 - recovery partition
3 - work/home/programs and unixroot partition
Worked like this more than 6 months  (I suppose SSD garbage did its work since this date)     

I burned a DVD with the latest linux mint  (64bits)
I boot from dvd and then mount 2 different os/2 jfs partitions ( 2 and 3 ) and run fstrim on them ...
There is very less write operation on my boot partition 1 (and would like be careful with it and not tried yet)

Afer getting back which seems good result, I boot OS/2 (ArcaOS).
Boot was faster but working on my fird partition was very faster. Looks to be very good and it's worth it

See fstrim result.

It would be wise to do a backup but I did do fstrim on both my boot and data (jfs) partitions a couple months ago using fstrim booted from mint USB stick successfully.

I've even done it on Fat32 and HPFS, apparently successfully a few times.

It would be tremendous if this could be ported to Arca OS or any other OS/2 variant.

I think it is on Arca Noae's road map for JFS. When they'll find time is another matter.
