I was lucky enough to be given a 40 GB SSD as a Christmas gift; and, given the inherent speed of these drives, decided it would be best used as the
/ partition; but then it occurred to me that this might not be enough space.
The plan I have in mind is:
40GB SSD -
1TB HDD -
I'm not quite sure about where to put swap, but I'm toying with the idea of keeping that in RAM (if it's feasible), or on the HDD (if RAM isn't feasible).
I guess my question is three-fold:
- Is a 40GB SSD practical for use as
- If it's not practical, is Ubuntu (it'll be 10.10) able to use the extra space on the HDD?
- ...as an after-thought: is it possible to separate
/out at all? So that
/var(for example) are on different drives? (Since
/var/www/is, to me, more closely related to the contents of
/homethan anything else).
