that is true, instead of full 1366x__, it dropped me to 1024x768 and
in that too text looks sufficiently streched to think reconfiguring X.

and why should I not have my home as primary, as well as, / and /boot?

rest all can be logical...

please do feel free to educate me about this issue... because if my
thinking is correct data from primary partition is better recoverable
than those whose logical link gets wiped out...

from recovery point of view always safe to have important stuff on
primary, of course that if old way of think, starting around or before
advent of linux and gnu!

and of-course nothing is as safe as keeping all the data off-computers :-)
