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.
And don't forget that FSCK is O(2) of the size of the FS or worse.

Very true, but still, checking a 5, 10, or 30GB partition is fast.

I routinely fsck 500+GB partitions mounted via iSCSI from a SAN [not the
fastest transport on the planet] and they complete in not that long.
Doing an fsck on a local hard drive on a reasonably modern desktop or
laptop is not much of an obstacle to larger filesystems.
