If, and I say *if*, just in case you should happen to believe
that "spreading fud by intention" would be the reason for me
questioning this, then I can assure you that it is *not*.

The real (and honest) reason is that I find it peculiar
that KDE should require 3 times more swap than RAM to run
on Solaris.
