Hi,

Am buying a new macbook for the wife (I'll predominantly keep using my powerbook). I like a nice clean, ordered desktop, however, she plunks things all over the place which will drive me nuts. So I'm thinking of setting up 2 users (one for each of us).

I'm assuming this is a basic question, but when I'm migrating over my itunes and iphoto libraries, where do I put them so that we both can use them when logged in individually?

So, as long as all apps are in the root app directory, they'll be accessible by both of us - is this right?

Also thinking of using VMWare fusion for windows stuff - anyone sharing this between accounts? and how?

Thanks.

Can't help you with VMWare or iPhoto, haven't tried them.

Id presume if it was in the shared folder rather than either of the users, it could be shared with anyone logged on the laptop.

Yep, I saw this same question on another site just minutes ago: users>shared folder :)
