Checking my USERPROFILE folder it does contain log files, some
.internal_folders_for_nix_like_applications and stuff that, well, belongs to
my profile (Desktop, Favorites etc)
I can't say that it resembles -more- a HOME path than does My Documents.
USERPROFILE is still a mystery to me, I would not have my applications store
anything there. :)
