Re: Are /home partitions worth it?
I agree with most things you say but this is absolutely absurd, I have had the same /home partition since 2008 on my main desktop it has been re-used for many Ubuntu versions and many other distros as well and I have never had an issue with configuration files not working with updated software versions and I have never heard of someone who has. Configuration files are always backwards compatible, the only way this would cause a problem is if you are downgrading a distro to an older one because software makers rarely consider forwards-compatibility
