[LAU] AVLinux (Was: a bunch of stuff)

Simple answer, no.
It doesn't trash 'ALL' partitions. It formats root (like any other distro)
and ~/home.
To circumvent this, leave ~/home on the root partition during install and move 
it afterwards to where you want.
It's really a great, smooth and fast running distro for audio work. Even though 
you have to install a bunch of music apps to your liking afterwards. But I 
prefer this approach to any other of the bloated 'trying to give you anything 
that exists out there' kind of offerings.
