No, .phoenix is a filename on Linux. The dot means that it can be made
invisible. They are often used to store (and hide) configuration settings,
sort of equivalent to an .ini file. Mind you, on Linux, a directory *is* a
file so it could be a subdirectory.)
~/ is a shorthand for the root user's home directory. (Every user on
Linux gets provided with a home. :-)
