The dialog is triggered by something like 75% RAM usage, but you can change it in the registry to any value you want. Honestly, this is one case in which Windows can't really be criticised.

Obviously it's enough for him if his workloads are within the capabilities of the system. WTF, how retarded of an anti-fanboy do you have to be to tell him otherwise, when he's perfectly happy with the performance? Besides, swapping to a SSD that pushes a few GB/s isn't like swapping to a slow HDD at all. 2GB of swap is nothing, especially when it's just swapping out shit that aren't used frequently.
I regularly peak over 4-5GB swapped out on my 16GB machine when I run a VM and have a big compile job running in the background. I don't give a shit if most of the VM gets swapped out when I don't use it. Same as I don't give a shit if Firefox is swapped out when I'm using the VM. Switching tasks is barely affected when you stream in memory at 3GB/s.
Combine that fact with something like zram/zswap and you can easily get by with 8GB for more than you think.

BTW, you can't turn off swap completely on Windows without making half your RAM useless. Windows has no over-commiting, so if something allocates 4GB of memory, but never uses it there will still have to be somewhere to put those 4GB somewhere in the worst case. If you have swap it will just reserve from there, but if you don't have swap it will claim that 4GB from RAM, even if it's not actually used. So you end up getting OOM errors even though your RAM is only half full. This is actually really fucking retarded.
