 Effective Partitioning - The How and Why of it

I like the bigger is better theory. He is right about to big being wasteful. But many times I have a very large disk available as the boot disk and a SAN or other disk for the data. In that case, bigger really is better. Especially partitions you never ever want to fill up.

"The major work in creating partitions is to decide how many partitions to create and how much space to allocate to each of them. If too little is allocated, within no time, all the space will be filled up. And if too much space is allocated, then there will be a lot of unused space being wasted left around."
