I have a combination of 128 GB SSD and a 640 GB HDD. I'm planning to install Xubuntu 12.04 on it. I have read some question here (like What's a good partition method to combine an SSD boot drive with a 1TB data drive?) and most basic partitioning scheme should look like:
- / on SSD
- /home on HDD
I don't plan making /swap because I have 8 GB of RAM (or should I?). Is there a point on making separate /boot partition on SSD? Would I benefit from butting something more on SSD?
There are some suggestions to but programs you use most to SSD to speed things up. Should there be a separate partition for this? Would it be good idea to install virtual machines to SSD?
If i want to reinstall rather than upgrade should i make a separate partition for user files so I could overwrite /home? If yes, how big should /home be?
