re. SSD Dual boot partitioning scheme: Win 7 Pro and Ubuntu 12.04
My question is at the end......
Here's my set-up so far (64-bit architecture, 8GB of RAM, 240GB SSD) :
Primary partition containing Win 7 Pro installation (45GB) ;
Primary FAT32 partition with nothing on it (1GB) ;
Primary ext4 partition for GRUB2 bootloader files (1GB) ;
Extended Partition (176.57GB) containing:
--Linux swap partition (2GB) ;
-- Unallocated space (174.57 GB) ;
I'm tempted to create only one logical partition in the remaining unallocated space, to hold Ubuntu 12.04 and all Win 7 and Ubuntu user data files, as I've heard this may reduce writes to my SSD, but does anyone believe I should instead create two or more logical partitions, one of which would be a separate /home directory to store all user files, including those from Win 7?
