Hey GNU/Linux #distro maintainers, it would be awesome if your homepages all had a standard page - something like www.distroX.org/partitions - describing the default partition scheme your latest release sets up and why.

5G is being aggressively marketed in policy circles because it provides a useful distraction from the fundamental fact that the United States market is missing out on fiber's affordable prices and extraordinary advancements.
