Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu 13.04 has been released, with the Linux 3.8.8 kernel, a faster and less resource hungry Unity desktop, LibreOffice 4.0, and much more. Ubuntu users will know where to get it, and you're looking for a new installation, have fun. Also fun: UbuntuKylin.

The OS still expects swap to be there. Windows 7 and 8 pre-fetch regularly used programs. Which is why it appears snappier.

Turning it off doesn't make the system any faster when there is plenty of memory and makes the system more likely to fail when running out of memory.

Turning it off has absolutely no benefit.
