FWIW, following an advice to do so, I've developed a habit of removing
the battery when my notebook is sitting on my desk at home, sometimes
for weeks with uninterrupted AC power supply. I believe the battery
benefitted from that, but I've no statistically significant data to
corroberate that, of course.
The article in the German magazine c't (or was it iX? anyway...) said
that the battery will periodically be re-charged when the system is
permanently connected to AC power, and that these minimal re-charges
caused unnecessary deterioration.
