    I see.

    Can ZFS be used as Swap too? What about persistent computing and never need to close apps unless misbehave?

      Yes. Create a ZVOL and then run mkswap on it. Works perfectly.

        "Performant" is not an adjective. It's a noun meaning a performer in a play.

        Yes, language constantly evolves, new words are added and others fade away every day. And all words are just "made up". Usually when a word is "officially recognized", it has already been in use for quite a while. One dictionary has even added "performant". I get it. I'm usually the first to point all that out when someone says "that's not a word".

        But this word in particular drives me absolutely ape-sh*t like no other word in spoken or written language. Mainly because it became popular among wanna-be-nerd corporate brownnosing ladder-climber types with no actual human talent other than thinking they sound sophisticated. Then it trickled down into an epidemic of stupidity. (Yes, I get it, nowadays not all uses are stupid.)

        For the love of all that is holy, stop using that stupid f***ing word.
