Swappiness is the kernel parameter that defines how much (and how often) your Linux kernel will copy RAM contents to swap. This parameter's default value is “60” and it can take anything from “0” to “100”. The higher the value of the swappiness parameter, the more aggressively your kernel will swap.

What is Fedora?
Fedora is a community driven project and GNU/Linux distribution sponsored by Red Hat. It serves as a testing platform for both Red Hat and for the worldwide open source community as it is usually one of the very first to implement new and yet untested free software technologies. As a Linux distribution, it follows a strict development plan that doesn't allow the use of proprietary licensed software such as popular media formats codecs and closed source hardware drivers. The large community around the project though, has developed unofficial tools to overcome these problems and enjoy a modern and edgy system that is Fedora.
Why Choose Fedora?
There are many reasons to choose Fedora over any other distribution with the most important being to get a taste of the latest developments in the world of free software. All the new and pioneering technologies and features are usually found first in Fedora. The magic in this case is the way that Fedora developers manage to implement those untested technologies while keeping the system relatively stable and suitable for serious work, essentially opening the way for wider implementation of these technologies.
Another factor would be the popular GNOME Shell environment. If you are a fan of the particular desktop environment, then Fedora should be your number one choice. GNOME Shell is found to work seamlessly in Fedora with all of its features enabled and all of the stack libraries included by default. Fedora is the distribution of choice for GNOME developers anyway, so you won't get a purer and less error prone GNOME Shell experience in any other distribution.
In addition to the above, Fedora offers a plethora of advanced web administration and SSH tools, is highly optimized for virtualization with each new release offering greater abilities in that sector and finally includes very advanced security frameworks. The SELinux (Security Enhanced Linux) tool that is included and activated in Fedora by default offers extreme levels of security and thankfully can be configured to allow for daily tasks such as peer to peer connections.
Finally, Fedora always runs on the (almost) latest available Linux kernel, offering great benefits in the hardware support, speed and energy saving parts. The very frequent updates rarely cause breakages, and even when they do, things are always only a few days from getting fixed.
