Yes, you could do this, however you should do a live install, instead of a full install. Live systems are designed to run from your computers RAM, and minimize the ammount of read/writes to the flash drive. This is important because flash drives have much more finite life spans than hard discs, and a full install, although possible, will burn the drive out ...

There is no problem, so you do not need to do anything. The question is misunderstanding how system cache works. System cache does not occupy memory thereby preventing it being used by processes. It only occupies available memory. Once that memory is no longer available because a process has allocated it, it will no longer be used by the system cache. ...

You only use swap when: You're out of RAM. Inactive things in RAM are paged out to disk (in swap). You hibernate. The entire contents of RAM is dumped in swap so it can be loaded when the power is back on. Having some swap is very useful but you only need a big swap if you want to hibernate. Otherwise a couple of gigabytes as a reserve is good enough. ...

The Libreboot X200 comes with Trisquel GNU/Linux pre-installed. http://shop.gluglug.org.uk/about/ Trisquel is based on Ubuntu. Trisquel 7 "LTS" is based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, I believe. My understanding is that Trisquel is Ubuntu with every last bit of non-Free software ripped out (plus other features like its own "...customized version of the GNOME ...
