Contrary to that recomendation, I have a linux system that uses a
single 50 megabytes partition and never gave me problems. Maybe
because I never have to use more than 16 megabytes of it...

That quote from Matt Welsch's book was transcribed some time ago, at
which point the statement was most likely true. I have filled all 3
110mb swap partitions on my SS10 running Linux without any problems.
