[Pharo-project] How do I get the user directory?

aka $HOME or ~/

There is SecurityManager default untrustedUserDirectory
but on my machine this returns
'/Users/damien/Library/Preferences/Squeak/Internet/My Squeak'
and SecurityManager default secureUserDirectory
but this one returns nonsense like  '/foobar/tooBar/forSqueak/bogus'

Besides I have no idea what an untrusted user directory is. Perhaps a
Windowsish concept ?
