Of course not. That rule is not THE RULE is just and advice, if you think 
you're gonna use the 100% of your RAM, well....that should not be normal, you 
would have a problem,  16GB God...

I don't know for what are you going to use that server and the amount of 
memory you plan to use, but 16GB seems to be too much.

Maybe you can have 2GB of SWAP and if, for whatever reason, you need more, you 
can just set up a swap file using dd and stuff...

Hope this helps
