Free paritition

I've got 7 partitions on my single 80GB HD. One for Windows, one for FAT32 data (mostly games + videos). One for Linux, and one for data that I use in Linux, mostly the source code of my own OS, Cefarix. One other partition is the swap partition. Then there is another partition for Cefarix OS, and I keep another partition free for transferring raw data sometimes between my OS and Linux (since my OS can't write into ext2/3 or FAT32 yet). This free partition might also be used for testing new OSs, although the last time I had another OS installed it was ReactOS, and that was installed into the secondary Windows FAT32 partition.
