Why do people recommend using a separate /home partition? I have only
used one on the last couple of installs and what I found was that the
.config files remained which may conflict with the new release
installation. This time for 13.10 I was thinking of a separate
partition and saving all work files to it rather than the /home
partition. This is then easier for backups.
