I used both mac and windows altho trying to phase windows out as i find i spend half my time on windows trying to tweak setting and such

Any i wanted to ask this, on my windows machine to increase perfomance i had partitons for the following 1. The operating system 2. Applications 3. Data files 4. Temp files 5. Swap File

I was wondering if apple macs can benifit from being partioned in this way or if the is any benifits in using partitons on macs at all?

i cud see the benifits of separating the os from data as if u wanted to re-instal osx u wouldnt delete ur data but would there be ne point separting apps etc??

sorry for the confusing post and thanx
QUOTE Thanks
