Recommendation on partition sizes




Considering that I will be installing Debian 9.5 Stable on a new Dell laptop with 512 GB SSD and 16 GB RAM, and intend to also run Windows 10 as a virtual machine from the /home partition (so it doesn't get affected during kernel updates and upgrades),

does this seem like an adequate space allocation:

1MB free space (as per a recent post on this forum)
boot partition, not encrypted, 1.5 GB
/ root, encrypted, 40 GB
/swap, encrypted, 16GB (same as RAM)
/home, encrypted, contains the virtual Windows 10 and documents, the remaining approximately 454 GB

Thanks!
