Pretty much a partitioning question. 2 or 6 partitions? Usage and or

/boot is nice to have on a separate partition for various reasons. It
doesn't grow out of bounds, either, so it's an easy choice.
Everything else lives perfectly well on / most of the time
I've heard somewhere that it's nice to have /home on a separate
partition for smoother upgrades (read: reinstalls), but that seems like
a lot of work, since both /home and /usr like to grow in size.. It's
definitely easier to make a mistake than in case of /boot.
Of course none of this would be an issue if there weren't any legal
problems with a certain filesystem that will go unmentioned so as to not
start another flame war :)
