Tips and tricks for Haiku/BeOS users

Don’t remove /boot/home

This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

Even though the contents of /boot/home are yours and aren’t touched by BeOS during installation, it’s important that you don’t remove this folder entirely. For instance, if you have BeOS installed on multiple volumes and just want to keep your home folder on one of them, you might be tempted to replace the main one with a link to the folder on the other volume. Don’t do this. BeOS will boot strangely, your desktop will be empty, and lots of things will go screwy.
