I guess people still do those. I have one on my laptop, but that's because I only have 4GB of RAM in that thing. I'd never hibernate it, though. If I can't just get it back from suspend immediately, I'd rather just boot it from scratch. On bigger machines where I have 16GB or more, I tend to go "I'd rather fail early and perhaps buy more RAM than see the slowdown or write to my precious ssd". I guess I might have a swap partition just because a distro did one for me and I didn't catch it. So yeah, maybe swap partitions are still more common than I thought. And I didn't even consider the possibility that people would hibernate a desktop like you do. Linus
