If I wish to install more than one distros of linux, is it possible, safe and recommended to share a common swap partition among them to save my disk space?
It is OK to share a swap partition among the many distros, I have 7 distros sharing a single swap partition and have experienced no problems.
Yes because your only running one OS at a time
