/me args at YA tiny JS lump. It's tiny, and wrong. Probably. But it's
difficult to tell with such a small "Description". Please add some
useful text.

The code, well...

	if (process.platform === 'linux') {
		return home || (process.getuid() === 0 ? '/root' : (user ? '/home/' + user : null));

Things are more complicated than that. What exactly is this code meant
to be used for?
