I finally made the step and bought myself a 16GB RAM kit for my workstation!
8GB of RAM was fine for almost everything. But I had to use a swap file relatively often.
Swap files are great and all but they can really degrade the lifespan of your SSD :(.
@Ghosty should I disable swap if I've got 16 GB RAM?
@techit It depends on the workflow you’re in :). If you need more than 16GB of RAM on a general basis you should keep it. If not delete it :D.
Generally speaking: you don’t need swap with 16GB of RAM if all you do is gaming, browsing the web, coding and other generic stuff.
@Ghosty yes this is my usage,
I know sudo swapoff -a works fine, but how could I disable it completely by default, and be able to turn it on back manually if there is something?
@techit Remove the swap entry from /etc/fstab :D
