I'm soon about to purchase a new desktop (for gaming, programming etc), and I'm trying to figure out a good setup for a dual boot with Linux and Windows 7.
I'm thinking of getting a SSD for storing the operating systems and applications, and having a large 1 or 2 TB harddrive for storage (for both operating systems) and games (for Windows 7, I have many games).
Right now I'm thinking of a setup like this:
- /dev/sda1 – Linux root partition
- /dev/sda2 – Linux swap
- /dev/sda3 – Windows 7 partition
- /dev/sdb1 – Linux /home
- /dev/sdb2 – Windows 7 storage and games
I've never had a SSD before, so I have no idea if this a good setup or not. My question is basically is this a good setup, or should I do something else? If I get say, a 60GB SSD, to do you have any good recommendations on partition sizes on the SSD?
