I run my laptop without swap and with /tmp on tmpfs; I have 16G RAM. I
have not noticed problems. I do this because I'm using a single SSD and
I'd rather not end up hammering the SSD if something is doing insane
things with memory. I'd assumed this was a reasonable configuration
these days - am I misinformed?
