    Thread moved to Installation & Upgrades.

    You don't need 2x the RAM and not sure why /home is so small.

    If you go for a custom, manual partitioning setup, you certainly won't get anything like that if you let Ubuntu do it for you. It won't give you a separate /home, for instance. All in / and it will make / on any free space it finds (or wipe your whole drive and use that if you instruct it to). Not ideal.

    Not sure what you mean when you ask 'let Ubuntu configure the file system ...' You mean the file system of the partitions you're creating? They'll be EXT4. Use that anyway, regardless how you do it.

    15GB is not much space for /home unless you are storing data elsewhere.

    Ubuntu doesn't create a separate /home by default
    So if you prefer it, do it manually and assign mount points during install
