Actually, on a UNIX-like OSes (or, on those that are multiuser by design),
every user has his place in which he is supposed to do his job. That's
called his home directory.
"rm -rif" is a UNIX command. If you don't know what it does, don't try it.
It can induce headaches worser than in katzenjammer.
