LXer: Switch distributions – Keep your files & settings

Published at LXer:

I have been a GNU/Linux user for a year now, and in this time I changed 4-5 distributions. In this process, even when reinstalling the same distro, I wasn’t aware that I could keep the settings and configurations of my applications. The secret is the /home folder, where the GNU/Linux Operating Systems keep the data of the user, the configuration files of the applications installed and much more.
