A partition layout simply says give such and such space to this and
such and such space to that in the logical address space.  Specifying
how much space to allocate to different things is still needed and is
not obsolete.

Partition layouts are changing schemes however.  The newest scheme you
may have heard about is GPT (GUID Partition Tables).


The impetus for these changes is usually to exceed limitations in size
of the previous schemes.  As storage has gotten bigger it has exceeded
the capabilities of the previous schemes.
