Right, Linux has user profiles just like (except far superior to)
Windows, and Firefox on any system is good about keeping settings
stored in the user's profile, so you can have completely different
browser configurations for each user, and the homepage is a very
fundamental part of that. The only operational difference is that on
Linux, the Options dialog is not accessed through the Tools menu in
FF, I believe it's through the Edit menu (not on Linux at the moment
to confirm).

So I wouldn't say this is any easier on Linux than Windows, but it's
certainly no harder. And of course, there's all the other benefits of
Linux over Windows...(oops...flame off! flame off!)
