Hi List,

Now we have 13.2/Gome 3.14, Leap 42.1/Gnome 3.16 and soon
Tumbleweed/Gnome 3.18 using Gnome DE.

For ease and practical use (and disk space save) I prefere to use
shared /home for multiboot installations with different roots.

IMO, it is better not to share /home, but instead to share another
partition, call it /otherhome or whatever.

Then on each install use either the system "/" and a "/home" directory
(or another small partition if you must).

In your "/home/USERNAME/", create symlinks to directories in
"/otherhome/USERNAME/", like Documents, to store whatever you need to
share across your different installs.

This way, you don't mix configurations of any program, which can
create weird problems, and still keep a single separate partition for
your data for all the installations.
