I put this much ram into the system to keep from having swap. I still say
swap=2x ram is a stupid idea. I fail to see the logic in that. Disk is
much much slower than ram and if you're writing all ram to disk that's also
I have a machine with 256mb of ram and no disk. It runs just fine w/o swap.
Only reason I even had swap here is if I ran something that used up all my
memory and it has happened.
Since when has linux started to be like windows "our way or no way"?
