I'm about to install a linux distro. Wondering about which size to allocated to home and root. I know the home partition will generally contain the user's files and stuffs. I want to know: when installing a package, does it store on the root partition, or the home? That would help me to determine which size to allocate to root and home.
Update: Currently running Windows 8.1 Pro and Ubuntu on it. Windows 2 partitions: 200GB, 146GB. Ubuntu: 50GB, Swap 4GB. New linux distro (Kali 2.0) to be installed on 50GB of unformatted space
