6 it's true that most of the time 12BG is more than enough for me and i
7 don't use swap space on disk. i wouldn't go for a swapless system, though,
8 specially since i'm going to put things on tmpfs.
10 a few GB (i'm thinking about 8) of swap space on disk won't hurt, and i'd
11 feel safer. that's the idea of reducing swappiness to 1 or 0, anyway.
13 best,
