Now they have to learn that they have a home directory for storing files
and /tmp was always a bad idea.

/home doesn't fit if one wants the file to be accessible by other people.

For instance, when I want to attach a file to a bugzilla, and the file is owned by root, I first copy that file to /tmp so that my user FF can read it and attach it.
