[Wolves] Question 1st, Rant 2nd

Going very slightly off kilter on this one... Would it be fair to say
that a complete re-install of a new version of the same distro is
better?  That is, better than upgrading?  SuSE always seems to have
problems if you upgrade rather than re-install and now, apparently, in
some small way so does Ubuntu.

A good argument for keeping a separate home partition then perhaps?
Which is not something I have done but am seriously thinking of doing
now.  I admit that I have always done the 'MS' thing and allowed the
installer free reign.  I think the only time I purposely decided
partioning was when I set up Vector Linux.  It was actually a good
experience, educational in its small way.

I know that there are major issues with having a separate home
partition if you are trying a completely different distro due to UID
allocations - some start at 500 while others start at 1000.
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
PLEASE DON'T drink and drive it's not clever, it's just stupid.
