If you've downloaded and installed the latest Ubuntu 17.04, one of the new features you probably didn't notice is that the system was installed without a dedicated swap partition. That's because a new installation of Ubuntu 17.04 uses a swap file, instead of a swap partition. Yup, just like Windows, swap file has come to Ubuntu.
