    Question Installing Fedora on NVMe M.2 (Samsung 960 EVO)


    I wish to install Fedora 27 (if the version matters in this case) on an NVMe M.2 SSD, and according to the info here, it is advised to install it with the SSD formatted to xfs (instead of the usual ext4) in terms of performance.
    Besides that, I see that when letting the installation choose the partitions for you, it creates one for swap (8GB) which i do not require because I have enough RAM on the machine and don't use hibernation.
    So - what are the advised settings to use when installing Fedora 27 on Samsung 960 EVO NVMe M.2 SSD?
    Does it matter if I encrypt the entire drive?

    Thanks in advance!

    **PS Is there any chance to remove swap partition on current system and join the formatted space to /home?
    **Is it possible to switch to xfs without reinstalling? (doesn't seem likely or make any sense...)
