as many (most?) others, I edit my crontab via
crontab -e, where I keep all routine operations such as incremental backup, ntpdate, various rsync operations, as well as making my desktop background christmas themed once a year. From what I've understood, on a fresh install or new user, this also automatically creates the file if it doesn't exist. However, I want to copy this file to another user, so where is the actual file that I'm editing?
If this varies between distros, I'm using Centos5 and Mint 17
