On the 1gb XO 1.5, I have experimented in loading up many applications
concurrently, and have never seen any usage of a linux-swap partition that
is installed and mounted on the SD card. On the other hand, on the 256Mb
XO-1, that swap partition gets used regularly when I have multiple
applications open.  I am hoping that if the 1.75 goes back to 512Mb, that
this won't mean that one will need a swap partition again for multi-app

Just my 1.9 cents worth.
