I am about to format and manually partition my hard drive for Ubuntu for the first time. I have 16GB of RAM. I am wondering if I should even allocate a swap partition? Should I just make a root partition and a home partition?
Honestly, you can just make a root partition and you would be fine. But if you hibernate your computer, you will need the swap space. Also if you do not have a lot of ram, it will be useful to have swap space.
