I noticed that the Installer of MX-17 Horizon when told to use entire disk, for installation, is not setting the swap partition to match RAM size.
It seems to want to format it to 2.0 GB in size. My system, however, has 12 GB of Ram out of a possible 24, (Triple Channel Memory 6 slots, Core I7 HP) Pegatron motherboard).
So I know I can use Gparted to shrink the main partition, and then delete swap and create a new one, but shouldn't Installer have done that for you?
While this may not present a problem unless you Hibernate, it is a potential problem, that should be addressed, or corrected.
It would also perhaps be a bottleneck if you were running a lot of applications at once.

It does not have to match the swap size. I get by fine with a 3 GB swap on a 8 GB system, but I make sure I'm not using more than 3 GB memory before hibernation. Ram is compressed before it swapped to a hibernation file, too, but I think you would be cramped with a 2 GB partition, myself...have you had any hibernation failures yet?
