swap? memory and ssd
ok not sure if this is the correct heading or not
I have a laptop with 6 gigs of ram and 128 gig ssd with 500 gig second drive.
I'm planning on installing linux and windows on it.. have just installed the ssd. with such a large amount of ram and fast drive why do I need swap space?
