Partitioning on Windows, at least, appears to be more of a preference than a
best-practice.  I don't know of any quantifiable benefit from partitioning

BUT, putting Windows/apps/pagefile on a RAID 0 boot array consisting of 2+
Raptors?  That would make a significant difference.

Subject: [thelist] Windows Server Partitioning

One of my clients hired a host who setup for us a dedicated Windows
Server 2003 Standard Edition machine. The machine has one hard disk
with 1 terabyte of space. They set it up as one partition. [...]

The question is, is this enough of an issue that I should request the
host to repartition?
