Skip it.

This 'technical' article actually ends, I am not kidding, with this line:

Ha ha. I just read the LXer article too. When I first started out on Linux, I was confused by the amount of conflicting info that I read on how big to make my swap partition. I'm sorry to say that this article is a huge example of the misdirection that is out there. The LXer NewsBot seems to have been affected by the "alternative facts" virus.
