1. I keep them on our server
2. My main dev platform is Windows, where I am using the files on our
server. For finishing I take a copy over to my Mac. I don't trust Apple to
handle my files on a windows server correctly AND up to today, runrev
destroys the standalone setting of each stack, if you are using any Umlaute
in the standalone settings, what isn't so untypical in Germany.

> 1. When you're working on stack files, do you always keep them somewhere
> your Home folder, or run with admin privileges and keep them somewhere
> (e.g. Applications)?
> 2. Do you regularly switch among different OSes, and if so how do you sync
> your files (drag-and-drop, rsync, OwnCloud, or something else), or do you
> bypass syncing altogether by mounting a shared volume?
> 3. If you do sync among multiple OSes, do you maintain the same paths to
> stack files on each system relative to your home folder?
> e.g.
> Mac:
> /Users/rg/SomeProject/MyStack.livecode
> Linux:
> /home/rg/SomeProject/MyStack.livecode
> If the latter, then specialFolderPath("home") works as a way of storing
> relative paths for multi-OS workflows in a tool I'm working on....
