Well...unless you figure out how to backup all the registry entries each program installs and then just restore them....I've heard of it working for games. But I think it would be way too much of a hassle to do it for every program.

So yeah, 2 partitions gets my vote. Oh and I'm curious....why 93GB for OS? Why not...100GB? Or 95GB?
I really don't know...93 just sounded like a good number for me.
