Yes, it was just a question for information point of view, and now cleared
that /home is for the data storage purpose and separate so that newer
installation(s) / up-gradation(s) doesn't show any data loss - that's why.

However, people with their different intention(s) separate even /var, /tmp,
/boot with their personal choice. I cannot do that until I get my legs
weight a little!

Hibernation and Suspension of distro -- these options are a little typical
for me at least, I just either logout or Shut down.

Logout - The current user logs out of the session.
Restart - To restart the computer to get back the session.
Shutdown - The machine is off now.

IN the definitions of the above form (the above three) can simple tell me
the same about 'Hibernate' and 'Suspend', as simple as written above so
that the broader non technical community can understand?
