There are requests to remove the warning about a missing swap device
from the expert partitioner for systems with only SSDs. I want to go
one step further and remove the warning altogether since RAM has
increased so much in the past.

You need a valid swap partition in order to let suspend to disk (ACPI
S4) work. A swap file would be possible, too, however, this is not
implemented/integrated into our infrastructure and would be worth yet

While RAM set sizes may have increased for servers, netbooks still have
the same lousy configurations as 3 years ago (1 GB RAM), which firefox
fills easily especially when flash pages are open.
The warning message should stay - it does not impact the ability to
install the system.
