    About the eMMC onboard storage, the docs say:
    "As a flash-based storage device, excessive drive access, particularly write commands, reduces its useful life. Therefore, it is strongly suggested to NOT create a swap partition on the eMMC device."

    What should (or shouldn't) I be using the eMMC onboard storage for?

    Currently, I don't have any other drive connected to the UDOO, so the operating system (Ubuntu Server) and everything with it is installed on the eMMC onboard storage. I did not configure a swap partition on it.
    Is it a bad idea to have the OS installed on the eMMC onboard storage device?
