I like playing around with the newest daily builds, different DE and stuff, yet need a solid (LTS) fallback to rely on, so I have two installs on the same machine... I know it wouldn't be a wise decision to use the same /home partition because it will ruin the configs.
But what would be the most elegant way to share the music, documents, videos, pictures folders between those two? There should be no harm done using this way.
I have the same user data (name and password) on both installs, can I just create a symbolic link or will I have permission issues? Is there a more elegant way to achieve this?
Are there any reasons I wouldn't want to do that that I am missing?
What if I had two different accounts (my girlfriends) that I want to use the same files on, what would be the easiest solution to set up the permissions for that without harming security to much.
Thanks a lot,
