Hi  Eartha,

User home directory means that when user login into system user will get access to write, read and execute permission on specific folder that called the home directory in Linux operating systems. 

Activities of home directory are following that it can keep data for user, give access to copy files from another directory, keep a mail folder for user etc. 

The root’s home directory is /root directory.

Hello Dixon,

First and foremost don’t confuse yourself with the root directory and the user’s home root directory.  They’re completely different.  The root directory which is represented by </> is the starting point of all directories in the Linux structure.  The user’s home root directory </root> is the root’s user account directory and it is a top level directory in the UNIX system.  Subdirectories under /root directory includes /bin, /boot, /dev, /etc, /home, /mnt, /sbn and /usr.
 
Now the user’s home directory which is </home>.  This directory contains all the data files created by the Linux user.  As the owner of the /home directory, you have all the permissions to read, write and execute data to your own home directory.  You can also new create files and directories as well.
 
If you are the root user or the superuser, you have the absolute power over your Linux system.  Like full access to all files and commands, ability to modify the system, grant and deny access permissions for other users.  
The non-root users of Linux have a home directory as well and they are located under /home directory. It will look like this:
 
/root/home/ABC
 
But if you are the superuser, again your path to your home directory is:
 
/root
