Re: Discussions about Partitioning

a swapfilze cannot defragmented. 

Believe it!
Irrespective of the hardware, partitions are useful for those who decide to use them, use them to prevent overflow from one part of the file system from "spilling over" into another category, trashing the data on Your / slice with new jazz from your /tmp, and so forth and so further.

You have to remember that there is a wide range of projects that are done with Linux, a fat gamut of users and super/users.  Great thing about Linus is that he has something for each of us.

this statement does not make any sense, and the conclusions from it...
the storage ssd or disk, does not know about partitions and it does not

partitions are only a logical way in organizing storage, which can make
sense or not.

it is a false assumption that a swap parition on a ssd is using some
ssd-disk blocks more intensive than others.
the ssd cares for it self, and is rotating the internal storage to avoid
a partial breakdown of the disk.

a swap file, or a swap parition does not matter both use static logical
blocks on the disk. on most
filesystems a swapfile cannot defragmented.
