The problem is that any modern Windows does not just have a single home
directory for a user, but many of them. For example, there are the
HOMEDRIVE, HOMESHARE, and HOMEPATH variables, which may or may not be set.
In the light of these, I would argue that USERPROFILE is *not* the
user's "home" directory - it is the user's "profile" directory.
So I think that the text is practically correct as it stands.
