Why should one mount Linux /home/?

Why should one mount the Linux /home/ directory instead of using a symbolic link?

Simple answer from my side: The package manager pacman and I assume also other package managers may delete the symbolic link during the update process and create a new home directory instead.

If you need to store your home data on another storage then your root partition, consider to mount your home directory via fstab.
