4. The Users Domain

The main purpose of the Users domain is to hold GNUstep related files which shall not be available to other users on the system but only to the user owning them. This includes the GNUstep defaults database (which holds system settings, application preferences and customized resources) as well as temporary data related to services and file type associations for programs. It also holds user installed applications and tools (each user has the ability to install their own version of an application or tool).

In the GNUstep filesystem layout (and in most other layouts too) the User domain is completely contained in a subdirectory of the user’s home directory called ‘GNUstep’.
