I couldn't find this info anywhere already on the internet, so I wrote it.

Based on this, if you want to write cross-platform client code, I have to conclude, it's probably best to stick with ApplicatinData, CommonApplicationData, LocalApplicationData, and Personal or MyDocuments.

People, I think, will be tempted to use UserProfile, if they need to do something in the user's home directory, but it looks like that's not a good idea, at least for now.
...  Or ... Use UserProfile in Windows, and use Personal in everything else.
