Partition sizes

For me, I usually just go with 40G for the '/' partition, my swap 
matches the size of my physical memory and /home gets the rest.

Swap needs to match the amount of your physical memory if you're 
planning on hibernating. If you don't plan to ever use hibernation, and 
you have a lot of physical memory, like 16G, then you could get away 
with a lot less swap, if you use any swap at all.
