If I boot into Ubuntu and then use some compilers or interpreters like gcc or python and do some internet browsing with Google chrome without saving any file to the partition I am booted from, and then simply shut down. In the above case what will be the directories that will still be written and how frequently they will be written? and what will be directories that are most frequently accessed to read from?
By 'writing some directory', I mean writing some file in that directory. By 'directory' I mean standard subdirectories of root directory.
