    bwooster47,

    I'm in the same spot.

    cyaneo,

    I'm now in the same spot you were a few months ago :-)

    How did it go?

    Any side-effects, especially with updating your system? I have read that doing...
  3. Poll: Re: Ubuntu makes user home directories readable by other users

    Whoa... In what way am I being insulting? What language is "arrogant, demanding, and offensive"?

    Honestly, I'm not trying to be offensive. Apologies are obviously in order again.

    Seriously,...

    (Re-stating) I don't see a 'Private' folder. On the contrary, I have a 'Public' folder.

    It is the presence of the 'Public' folder which...

    The issue with the 'Traditional Userbase' is what's making Linux's transition into the mainstream so painful. I was hoping Ubuntu might be the exception to the...

    Onopoc,

    Thanks for that one! :-)

    Fair enough.

    Fair enough.



    I *see*... OSX has *both* a 'global' shared folder and a 'user' shared folder. This seems cool to me. I would actually have a slightly different structure again though:

  9. Poll: Re: Ubuntu makes user home directories readable by other users

    You said


    You seem to be saying that world-readable Homes *are* a good idea but they are *not* a sane default. Seems contradictory. Am I misunderstanding?

  16. Poll: Re: Ubuntu makes user home directories readable by other users

    I'm not suggesting the admin user should get such a warning. The admin is the admin and should be able to do anything at all times, more or less.

    It would be a real shame if we felt that only *some* people had influence over these things. One of the very great things about OS is The Community.

  19. Poll: Re: Ubuntu makes user home directories readable by other users

    Exactly. They just want things to work. Why should they have to learn about permissions?

    If the defaults are sensible they don't need messing with.

    There *are* ways of making your box more secure.

    A perfectly benign one. Very little chance of anyone wanting to steal anything from it.

  23. Poll: Re: Ubuntu makes user home directories readable by other users

    No! Sorry. I just double checked and there are no writable folders other than the Drop box. I was making assumptions. My fault.

    Ok. Now we know.

    I *still* think it should at least be flagged during the install. It's such an unexpected thing.
