This is the thing: I want to install Ubuntu side by side with Windows. I have a big NTFS partition that has a folder with the same name as my username (let's say "joe"). Inside "joe" I have my personal files. Outside "joe" but still in the partition, there is random stuff that doesn't really belong anywhere, or now useless programs that I had to install there because the main Windows partition ran out of space.
My question is: If during the Ubuntu installer I choose to use that partition as /home and make a user called "joe", will everything work fine? Is it better if I delete the extra stuff?
