Multiboot with various Windows, Ubuntu's, other Fedora's? Each should have its 
own /, at least.

That said, if one does not work in multi-platform software development, I 
totally agree that cluttering the disk with all that stuff is very ugly, at 
the very least. These days virtual machines are much cleaner and easier to 
maintain than multiboot setups.
