I have my OS and pgms on C and my data is on D all the way up through the alphabet.

I have data separation, I don't need the unnecessary partitioning of my C drive to accomplish that.

so you do it yourself, but still want to argue for the unified? What do you care if someone else does "unnecessary partitioning?"

4 and 8tb SSDs are a reality now, and someone might want to use a single one of them in a laptop. Enter partitioning.

a) You did not read my initial statement which said except in some cases

b) You did not read the OP's first post where he wants to use an SSD for C for OS and pgms and a spinner for D and data.

For the above scenario the OP should do precisely that. Partitoning, for the OP, for what he plans to do, provides no value added.
