Hi :)
My guess is thatUbuntu created an 11Gb Extended Partition purely to put the 11Gb Swap in.  Not 
quite sure why it did that but the installer tries to make sure your system stays reasonably 
flexible for the future
Swap is just about on all systems in a separate partition and it is a very good idea to have that on a separate physical drive for performance reasons.

In *nix systems the type of file system (not every distro has the same "preferred" file system for the same type of file types) you use can also have drastic performance differences and it also depends what you put on that file systems, e.g. lots of document type files are not the same then e.g. a database data folder etc etc.
