There is no "potential" risk, Microsoft admited that even if there is STILL plenty of RAM left, it WILL swap less used pages for the sake of making real ram available, IN CASE OF. This is the point I choke on. IN CASE OF. Of what ? Have they made stats to figure out the ram consumption according to the applications loaded ? Nope, they just PREVENTIVELY swap less used things, IN CASE OF.

While I can understand the motives (make ram available for more serious usage) I would take the problem inside out : what the fuck are doing application allocating memory for nothing, that needs to be swaped out ? Seriously ? So I should raise defense barriers around my system to skirt the flaws in the third parties applications I paid ?

No ways. I got enough ram for the system to feels at ease, for not him having to swap around endlessly. If whatever quantity of ram provided (64 GB ?) the system still swap, I disable swap, pure and simple.

Come one guy, 8 fucking GB of RAM ! Do you even realize HOW MUCH space it is ? And Windows or applications can waste this ? It's not even a server or things like that, just a normal laptop (Dell Vostro 3555 A8). If applications cannot manage this much free space and I'm forced to turn swap back on, I'll just get rid of the poorly coded application.
