What's your typical partition set up with Linux?


I've used Ubuntu, Lubuntu, OpenSuse, Fedora, CentOs for starters.
Recently after an issue, I decided to reformat my laptop 500gb drive on a i5 and try Mint. Why not. So, i actually handed it to a friend to give me a little guidance as to what his best practice was on setting up the drive (partitioning.) Some other people said just leave it one whole volume and be done with it. My friend left a unknown megabyte for buffer, then put a swap disk space.
Just curious. What would you, or what do you, partition your laptop drive as, with a general purpose machine??
Please help.


I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
