I am currently running Ubuntu 19.04 on my Surface Pro 3 and I have decided to move onto Arch Linux. Reading each installation guide, I keep coming across "partitioning" and I want to know why. What I basically want to do is to wipe my disk and only have Arch on it. I don't want to share my disk with anything else. I will not be dual booting. I only just want to have Arch on my disk. So do I still need to partition?
Also, what is a recommended Arch Linux installation guide for SP3, given that these machines come with keyboard covers.
