[tor-talk] Tor Browser Linux_don't extract to root

What is the reason(s) the TBB instructions say do not install (extract) TBB to root? Is it so the TBB files will be in a location where the user has write permissions, so that TBB updates can automatically D/L and install?

Other than that, does installing TBB to a location where anyone / anything has full r/w/x permissions (like in /home), weaken the security of Linux, compared to packages installed via a distro's software manager?
