Are you migrating from Windows, or from one of the proprietary UNIX's?

If the former (Windows), then there are good reasons to separate binaries from database files, mainly having to do with growing log and trace files possibly filling the file-system and impacting the database (or OS, if you're only planning on one mount-point altogether).

If the latter (UNIX), what did you do on proprietary UNIX?  And why would you change?

Either way, would you consider using Oracle ASM?
