Going between distros is the most painful process of having /home on a seperate partition. Distros with different prefixes for distros that you spend so much time cp'ing pref files and whatnot.. just not worth it to me.

I have a media partition I back up my specific pref files I want to keep to, then that drive gets backed up every so often. I'm just as happy with that solution as I would be a /home partition.
