Is using a USB drive as swap partition a good idea?
To avoid writing so much on my SSD I've moved the swap partition to a 32 GB drive which goes for $7 nowadays and if it dies it won't hurt unlike if the SSD dies. I've also lowered the swappiness from 60 to 10. I assumed it would be faster on a USB than on the hard drive. Was this a good idea?
