comment How can I tweak my Linux desktop to be more responsive?
I have extensively tried out different settings for swappiness with no success. I have also noticed, that the opinions about the value of swappiness are not unified at all. For desktops some recommend 10, others 100, meaning they suggest they suggest the total opposite effect.

Linux is software that runs on hardware. Hardware is not included inside Linux :p

A lot of usages for desktop don't give this option since they are lapbooks, or netbooks which do not allow a second drive.

comment Which Linux distributions have highest install-base as of mid-2010?
Since it is impossible to track the number of installations, there can only be speculation on this issue.

comment How can I tweak the kernel for total swap out?
See at my update to the question. Keeping all pages in swap reduces swap times because only dirty pages need to be swapped out, hence there is less competing for io between swapping in and swapping out. This was the only option of swapping that a lot of older versions of Unix had, and it seemed to work far better than the Linux swapping I experience.

Not possible with the Linux kernel, or not possible at all? The latter is certainly not true, since that is how HP-UX swapping used to work. You could never run an HP-UX kernel without any swap.

Questions and answers take numbers from the same pool. Hence the number does not represent the count of questions.
