I have been using Ubuntu for a few weeks now as my first foray in to Linux and I really love it. However I came across something recently which confuses me. Someone wants to borrow my laptop for a few days. Its someone I trust however I don't really want them having access to my home folder as all my work is kept there. The obvious thing to me was to create a new user for her, which I did. But when I logged in as her to test it, I was able to navigate to my home folder and access documents etc with no problem. I only have Windows to go by but surely your home folder shouldn't be accessible to to other users by default?
