This is still happening in Ubuntu 17.10. Last time I tried to use ubuntu
it was with 16.04 and I had to stop using it because of this issue. This
is a critical bug, and I cannot understand that it is marked as low
priority and not assigned to anyone.

I cannot use Linux like this, I don't use the computer to browse web
pages and write a couple of documents, for that I would buy a tablet, I
use the computer to perform large computations, and they will overtake
the existing RAM of the computer.

I had a process that was generating a delanuay triangulation with a
large set of nodes, and it was impossible to perform this calculation in
Ubuntu, I switched to a MacBook pro with similar specs and the
computation finished in 2 min.

I have already tweaked the system using zram, zswap, changing the values
of the vm., like swappinness, etc. to no avail.

This is preventing me to change to Linux, and it should be fixed.
