Well there's been just one or two major vulnerabilities this year
(spectre/meltdown) that have been a major reason for some of these so
it's not unexpected, at least for those that vaguely sort of follow
the security industry.
Not my area of security industry. Protocol design takes up all my
cycles. But I did hear of these.
How would suspend work with no swap partition? I have to spend a little
time working out how to use gparted to add a swap partition to a sata HD.
And I can't test out suspend until I get a system with Xfce running.
Suspend is not interesting on a minimal image.
