comment Separating OS on a SSD from user settings and apps on HDD
sorry but doesn't really help me since user data is also kept on the application folder (or other folders besides home) and also things like themes, icons and minor configurations are splitted all over the place so if it was the only option i'm better making full backups and restoring things manually after a fresh install.

Because mint recommends a fresh install on new updates. But that's not the main reason I do it on Windows, is because I can easily backup my entire system and do upgrades without having to add extra files or go through 200 folders looking for settings I might have missed. It also avoids unnecessary writings to my SSD (besides the space limitation).
