Data swap in a dual boot system
and I was wondering if it is possible to move my documents (music, work, images etc) over from my ubuntu partition to my Debain partition (or Ubuntu) if I feel like changing to one completely again (after removing one from the hard drive).
I am aware that Ubuntu is debian based, however Debian is, I have been told, more customisable for whatever purpose I want to use it for (A combiunation of Music creation and text editing (probably with OOo, or Abiword))

In theory, you could just tar and gzip your entire /home/username directory and unzip it on your Debian box.
