Default User Files in Linux
When you create a user account, the home directory of the user is pre-populated with files that are in the /etc/skel directory. This is useful for distributing a copy of the usage policy for your system to all new users. You can use the "-k dir_name" option to specify an alternate directory of "-k /dev/null" if you do not wish to copy any files to the home directory.
