This is a major "throw out the baby with the water" recommendation.

It helps to learn how to do things rather than just wiping the slate
clean and starting over.

Although you are correct in the observation that there are differences

keep /home because you cannot figure out the differences and make
adjustments.  Create new users indeed!!!!   I THINK NOT.
