"I had the chance to kick the tires of the new
partitioner this week. It "does what it says," but the box looks
very, very different.
"There are two things I've always liked about openSUSE's disk
configuration tools. Being someone who frequently switches out
distributions, I've always liked that openSUSE, at least in the
last few major releases, mounts /home on a separate partition as a
default install option. Though not everyone changes distributions
as often as I do, there are still advantages (in terms of upgrades
and organization) to having a separate /home partition."
