This worked well for me too. In addition, I made sure that apps that
install are also in a non-system partition so that reinstall keeps
these apps safe and the need to re-install is less. Inspite of this,
to keep  compatibility as OS changes, I still have to install a few
core apps like mail client, monitoring utilities.
