    along with the typical comments about Windows 7 having the feature since introduction

    Well, let me be that guy... ;)

    Windows implements TRIM command for more than just file delete operations. The TRIM operation is fully integrated with partition- and volume-level commands like format and delete, with file system commands relating to truncate and compression, and with the Volume Snapshot feature.[1] []

    Does Linux come in a box these days, I thought you just downloaded it, and didn't have to pay for it and the packaging...

    It's been in the kernel for a long time now, google tells me since 2.6.33 (Which was released early 2010, about a half a year after Windows 7 was released). Ubuntu 12.04 (The last LTS) shipped with 3.2, so you could already enable TRIM using 12.04. This announcement is nothing more then a default settings change, I have no idea why it's even a big deal (Or why this wasn't already the default, I've been using it for a while now).
