How seperate are different users?
If my machine has 3 users (say, Bill, Jane and Root) how much spill is there between users?
Some example scenarios:
1- If Bill installs gtk-gnutella, can Jane run it?
2- If Jane then uninstalls gtk-gnutella, can Bill no longer run it?
3- If Root installs gtk-gnutella, can Bill break it?
4- Jane really tries to muck everything up in her account (e.g. malicious deleting/renaming), is it possible to break Bill's account?
5- Bill logs into a new machine first (say, mandrake) and gets all the "welcome to mandrake, let's set up your email", does that stop Jane from getting the same, or do all new users get this greeting?
6-If Jane makes all her KDE windows pink and twiddles all the look'n'feel settings will that affect Bill?
My guessed answers:
2-I guess Jane wouldn't be able to uninstall an app that "belongs" to Bill.
4-Jane cannot break Bill's account
