Re: recommended partition size for / ?
yo.. as others mentioned.. 10-20 gb should be enough for "/". on my home-file server i just have 10gb. on my main machines i use 15gb..
for swap, i prefer to have my total ram about 8gb. 4gbram, 4gb swat. its more than i ever need. but on the hdd-sizes we have these days i dont really miss 4gb
applications are installed in "/". what u oberserved that they get installed in "home" is not the application, but the user settings /configs for the applications.
btw, u probably dont need to reformat. u should be able to shrink "/" with using gparted
