Without wishing to open a large can of annelids, can someone tell me why
anybody actually cares about this? What is the use case for having /usr on a
separate partition - why does anybody want it?

I often put /var on a separate partition from /, but that's mainly to avoid
100% disk full problems (and also to allow me to manage / and /var separately
under LVM).

I've simply never understood why /usr being on a separate partition from / is
a desirable arrangement.



How many Prolog programmers does it take to change a lightbulb?
