Linux is multiuser system. There isn't "single person's home PC". Check
your /etc/passwd. There are plenty users. I understand that most of you
still think in Windows way (operating system that still isn't full
mutliuser system). Per user settings are managed in user's ~, not on the
level of administrator - that's how it's done on UNIX/Linux for decades.
