It think the option will depend on the owner of the system.
While you can make separate partitions for your system "root", "boot" "home" and etc? You can also have the option to do it simple like I do. One for "swap" partition and "everything" partition.
It's up to you on how it can serve your purpose well that counts. IMHOnujinini

You dont *have* to, but itīs best practice for several reasons.
- separate system from data
- prevent a flooded /var/log partition to affect other services
- best filesystem (or none at all) for a particular application
- performance, e.g. by splitting live DB files, db logfiles and backups, temp tables to separate spindles, etc
- etcYou must always face the curtain with a bow.

I have setup 12 active partitions, each booting a different Linux OS,
all called by Grub4Dos. Some smaller number when using Grub 2.
At some point after 12, Partition Magic (GpartEd) met a limit.
I was just experimenting, to set-up a bundle of different Linux OS.
Grub4Dos identified the Puppy OS in the .SFS file.
In Grub 2, I have had to write in the code for Puppy.
