/home/user or /opt?
I would like your opinion on this subject:
Say, I want to install a closed-source application. Where is safer to install it?
In my /home/username or in /opt?
/opt doesnt have its own partition; it is part of / whose options are: defaults
/home has the options nosuid, nodev, noexec. The application will run only if I remove the option noexec.
What is the good strategy in such a case in order to avoid adventures with execution of (maybe) suspicious code?
install it in /home/username folder only.
