i install ubuntu and followed a guide to put 20gb in '/' and the rest (150gb) in '/home'. Now i just found out that a lot of the things installed in ubuntu usually goes to '/' instead of '/home'. I have a lot more things to install.
So what is the point of '/home' ? How do I fix this ? Should I transfer 150gb from '/home' to / ?

what is /boot ? Its not '/' or '/home'
/" (answered by Rinzwind below!). To avoid the issues you have now a default (and recommended) installation of Ubuntu would not create a separate root partition.
