Good morning people,
I have an ultrabook in which I am currently using Windows because I "need" microsoft office. The laptop has two disks one SSD and one HDD
- SSD: 30 GB
- HDD: 320 GB
- Memory: 4GB
I would like to go back to Linux as I would like to set up a mini game server to play with the people here in town. However, I also need the laptop for daily basic tasks, access to email, office, etc.
I initially thought of using the 30 GB of SSD as "\", however in what I read of this small project, it would be interesting to host the files of that server on the SSD also, where in this case only 5 GB would be sufficient to store all these files.
I could partition the disks as
- "\" 25 GB SSD
- 8GB HDD swap
- "\ Home" 312 GB HDD
To create the other 5GB partition on the SSD for this server should I create another home or just any other folder?
Would 4GB of ram suffice to use Microsoft office via virtual box?
EDIT: Following this topic Optimize small SSD for ubuntu, from one of the comments, I should install all the system in SSD and then create a second directory in HDD for all media.
I should create this directory in the system installation or after it?
