Thanks for all the input on this. It's pretty much the same of arguments I've heard from friends, not that I expected any earth shaking remarks. I learned a LONG time ago to have /home in a separate partition so all 8 of my linux boxes at home are setup that way. I have a test box that I've used to test the test releases and found no real major issues. I just wanted to see if anyone else had some bad experiences with it.
