Not true. When that command was executed my uptime was about 25 days
14hrs or so (power outage knocked it down....d'oh!). The issue that I
would imagine that keeps me from using swap is that my LFS system is a
router/server and only has sshd, proftpd, and folding at home running. At
the time I ran `free` there were no active ftp connections and the only
active ssh one was myself.
