This could be a problem and I wound't do that exactly. Unless you are
using two Linux distributions:

- running exactly the same version of desktop environment (i.e. GNOME 2.16)


- running different desktop environments (i.e. KDE and GNOME)

Sharing configuration files between two Linux distributions can make
programs crash or behave badly.

What I would do, instead is setting up symlinks to common data, like
documents, bookmarks and music, and keep configuration files
