Default Do you still use swap?

Hello,

In the days of increasing RAM in computers - where 2GB is standard and 4GB or even 8GB is not unheard of - how many of you still use a swap partition. I think my first swap partition that I created back for Red Hat 9 was only about 1GB - back then they recommended double your amount of RAM for the swap. Today, some swaps would need to be 16GB or more to accommodate that recommendation. I believe that swap was used as a supplement for less RAM, but that help may no longer be needed.

So, how many of you still use a swap partition?
