Some of the files in your home folder might've had a different owner, but not necessarily. It's always a bad idea to use -R recursive if you're not 110% what you're doing, just btw.

RE: Cant install the linux client
@nimd: that why I pointed to the sudoers... Yes, it might be a bad(dish) idea for newcomers but with some googling/tutorials, it's very easy to make a mortal user able to do certain advanced things on a Linux-machine. It's indeed not necessary to have full root access but then again neither does the root-user, imho.

The WhatPulse folder seems quite harmless to use -R; other folders on a system can pose a bigger problem especially when compiling from source-files. The problem is (unreleased??) documentation on the end of the developers. Not that they need to supply documentation but it could help a lot of more advanced users to see and maybe troubleshoot better how the Linux-client works.

Tnx, my mistake, edited; && still think that it's an absolutely horrible idea to (have new users) enable root by editing the Sudoers file :p ;d but, I just didn't wanna stress the issue. :-)
