Unless I'm reading that thread wrong, it's about moving /home to
another partition.  The cool part about the *nix style disc layout is
that when you move the contents of /home and remount it, all of your
programs still find /home.  If you moved drives in windows then you'd
have to edit things to reference the new drive letter (or so it was
when I last played with windows, I don't really know or care if
they've improved on that :).
