11 What's retarded is copy/pasting words from last week's buzzword bingo as
12 if they're valid reasons to not use /home for home directories.
14 LUKS is a thing, but you don't use it. CIFS is a thing, but you don't
15 use it. Shared home directories are a thing, but you don't use it. Give
16 me one real example of how any of these things cause a problem and I'll
17 change my stance. I don't have a special emotional attachment to /home.
18 I think it's where this stuff should go because (a) home directories are
19 what /home is for, and (b) it doesn't cause any other problems. If (b)
20 isn't true, you win.
