It's interesting that in this thread - if I didn't miss anything - many
people told why having
separate partitions are useful. I agree with that. I just don't remember
seeing a use case why
a separate /usr is beneficial.

No?

Go fetch those paper books you included with SuSE Professional not that long
ago. A separate /usr
was recommended there.

Yes, people do it - and openSUSE continues to support it - but the only
reasons I'm aware of are historical like [1].

So, what is the reason to create a separate /usr with openSUSE 12.2? Please
educate me ;)

Spreading the system over several hard disks, speeding filesystem access.
