I keep my Ubuntu install on its' own partition, and use a data partition at /storage/ and just make links to the appropriate folders on the storage partition, replacing my stock home folders. this way I can keep some important settings that I spend time making changes to (such as mpd's settings, or LuaKit's), and my 'storage' folders (such as 'Videos' and 'Music') without having to worry about compatibility issues of settings files with a clean install of a new version. also, this works as a great way to consolidate data folders accross accounts (sharing music, etc)
