Re: Moving /tmp to tmpfs makes it useless

The suggestion was to just leave it as it was configured in partitioner.
If it was configured as a part of root fs leave it as it is. If it's on
a separate partition leave it there. Just no automatic tmpfs.

If you ask what I prefer personally... Well, for regular users I would
suggest put everything on a single filesystem. Regular users use to fill
entire disk space and then have headaches resizing filesystems or worse,
start saving files in some strange directories (/usr, /var) because other
partitions are already full. This is especially true for notebooks, where
you can't easily upgrade HDD. For advanced users, or users with 500+GB
HDD I would probably put /home on a separate partition. As for servers
it's pretty usual to have all the /home, /var, /tmp, /usr and /opt on separate

But that's IMHO, and that's a question for a different topic. :)
