Not performance, convenience! If you (as a new user) manage to mess up your 64studio installation completely after a while - yes it happens if you start to explore new things... you can reinstall your OS without changing a thing. Other than the "Other OS" all your user settings are stored in hidden folders in you own home folder. If you keep it intact, you will have a fresh system that feels like your old setup. To tell the truth, I don't even know what a new 64studio system looks like. Every time I upgrade my user settings stays. You can go for either, But I'll go for the partitioned setup every time. Cheers

thanks, thats what i wanted to hear, a few last question if i may... i have a laptop also so im going to wipe the pc i have setup for music and just install 64 studio, should i use the whole drive or are there performance gains in using say 30gb for os and 120gb for storage (is it home)?

hi, thanks for the reply, sorry to ask but is this the best distro for running music apps, and if so why? ubuntu studio is very popular? thanks

Looks like you might have installed 64studio over your ubuntu home... It happened to me once as well. I have the perfect solution though. Format everything and install 64studio only ;-) Over the past two years I slowly migrated everything away from the other OS, to 64studio. I don't miss my other PC. And it is all legal to boot!
