Recently I did an installation of Antergos on a netbook with 8GB SSD and 8GB SD card. To fit everything on such small space I've mounted
/ to SSD and
/home to the SD card and it is working perfectly. Because the SSD was not much faster than the SD Card (it is a very old SSD mounted in Acer One ZG5) I don't have any issues with performance.
Now I am planning to build a small Linux workstation and I already have a Kingston 60GB SSD that I can use but, because 60GB is not a lot I would like to have on it only those components crucial for the performance of the rig and keep everything else on a classic spinning drive.
I am programmer (mostly PHP, JS, Python) so most of my working files will be kept in
What do you recommend? Which parts of the system should I mount to SSD and what to HDD?
