True, I will, if I remember, run Mint in a virtual machine and run a couple of things with and without swap with 4gb of memory then I'll show you the usage tomorrow.My swap space file is about 2GB currently. I did try it with my second DIMM disabled and it still ran great with a 4GB Swap Space. I would not say that it ran as if it had 8GB of ram, but it did not feel like it had 8GB of RAM, but it was still pleasant and quite quick.
I should maybe keep System manager open to see if I am even using the Space.
Even with a lot of RAM browsers still consume quite a bit of resources. Websites these days run a lot of code client side.
