I already read this thread, so please don't mark me as a duplicate of it. That asks how. I want to know how safe it is.
I currently have Fedora 20 with GNOME 3.8. I've already messed up its configuration to the point of being unable to log in graphically, but that's not this question.
I want to install Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, with the default desktop environment (i think it's called Unity).
Will the two distros' configs interfere with each other if I use the same
I prefer not to put my main files/folders (docs, music, pics, git repos) in a subdirectory, as Nautilus seems to have hardcoded shortcuts to ~/Documents, ~/Music, ~/Downloads, etc.
I expect to use much of the same programs (Chrome, Rhythmbox, Nautilus, Sublime Text) on the distros. Will their configs get messed up if they're shared?
