[ubuntu-uk] Home partitions do I need one?

Is it still considered good practice to have a home partition, I have
seen it mentioned in the forums that its no longer required. But it
still seems to make sense to me.

I have just had a fresh install using 09.04 (as no one seemed able to
help me fix my network problem on 8.1, so a fresh install was my last
resort) so this would seem a good time to set up a separate home

Is this a good tutorial to follow?
http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/separatehome  or can anyone suggest a
 better one.

Many thanks,
