What is the horror of having your data and os on the same disk and partition?

Diskfailure? So what?
You don't have any vital data on only your personal computer do you?

That, if anything, is madness.

backup-backup-backup.
Then version control, and then some backup on the version control.

If so I have to use my laptop as a shield protecting myself from a crazy hobo with a shotgun, I shouldn't lose more then a couple of hours of work...
If it happens at the office, I'll lose like 30minutes of work, including the restore-time.

BTW, I really love how much quicker the checkouts are now, with SSD.

Also, keeping the web cache there speeds up my browsing.

If it breaks, who cares, then I'll buy a new one.
It's not really like its a noticable cost in the big picture...
