    Unlike Windows, you don't have to format your machine to reinstall the OS. It's not a bad idea to put your home folder on a different volume, but I haven't done this kind of thing since 10.4, since it's highly unlikely you'll need to reinstall your OS. Well, actually, it's highly unlikely I'll need to reinstall my OS. The same may not be true for other people.
