Although I usually suggest having a separate /home it doesn't make much 
sense in your case. Just be careful to store anything that can get big 
on the data partition, including your mail store (if you are using 
offline mail readers).

In my experience, the big stuff you usually want to have accessible from 
both distros anyway ;)
