comment Any benefit or detriment from removing a pagefile on an 8GB RAM machine?
On Solaris it was/is even more involved. The swap file is mirroed in a ram disk like tmpfs so the memory is always almost full - but it is apparently provable that this is the optimal strategy.

comment Is there a distro of Linux without GUI? What do hosting companies install?
Note this is only true for init based linux. Ubuntu uses a different mechanism (upstart) and always runs at run level=3
