10 years ago (not 25), news:// was hawt. And created tons on small files, by 
default on /var/news, which is/was one good reason to make /var have a 
smaller fragment size.
The use of /tmp as memdisk is obvious.
Having done several major version OS upgrades on different bootable slice, 
made me appreciate a /home partition.


Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
