No Ann I did not lost you.
My computers are probably a little different from what is expected. I have
several distribution/version root file systems as I have our embedded root
file systems we are working on. But I want the same data whichever system I
boot. Also I might move to another computer but I still want my "home data"
with me but not every "homes" configuration. It is very handy to have all the
documentation/mails/todo's and some applications/scripts with you even if you
are on your small footprint (less than 64MB windowmanager less) system.
As you mean my data will by scattered around. But as I said my is perhaps a
little special. We have been on Unix from 1984 and Linux from 1995. Don't ask
me why but this has grown during all these years.
