Not to change the subject too much, but does anyone partition their drives anymore? What are the advantages apart from organization?

I partitioned my laptop SSD into two parts, because I like having my data on a separate partition from the OS. That way I can just reformat the OS partition if I want to reinstall or upgrade without worrying about my stuff. I don't do that on my desktop, because there the data is on a physically different disk from the OS.
