Question about partitioning for instalation
I'm researching about all I need to know to migrate to Linux soon, and one of the things I've had trouble with is partitioning and the directory structure.
First of all, I don't understand very well the difference between primary and logical partitions; I thought I had the idea, but then I found you can make /home primary and logical and confusion arose again, I didn't know which to choose.
Second, I'm very confused about the way I should partition the drive to get Linux installed. As I understand, there are multiple benefits from installing Linux in this fashion (partitioning the drive), but you could do it just putting / in one partition, am I right? If not, could anyone give me some help and advise.
As always, thank you for your time.
