Sorry about your shoes, there... I hate when distros do that. I do not know
why more of the big distros do not partition out /usr, /var, /tmp, and
/home. And maybe /opt, but I consider software that defaults to installing
itself in /opt a pain in my arse.

Sorry, I am cranky from reading kernel source. I *wish* hardcore badass C

Sorry, I really do think that I am done now.
