    Cool Transfer /Home

    After deleting a Windows XP partition on my HDD, I have some extra space. I was thinking of reformatting in ext4 and transferring my Home directory there. How should I proceed and is this a good thing?

    Thanks for ur advice.

    Finally got around to the instructions provided through the supplied link. Everything worked out according to plan and my PC even seems to respond faster, Yay!. However, now the original partition were Home used to be is almost empty, since the OS (Ubuntu 13.04) takes up less than 10 Gib of space. What else gets stored in this OS partition, besides the OS?
