Dotfiles are the configuration files used customize the appearance and functionality of a unix system, sometimes reffered to as ricing.

Ricing refers to making visual customizations to a desktop. It comes from the practice of customizing slow cars to appear fast, also known as ricing.

The dotfiles name is derived from the configuration files in unix systems, these usually start with a dot and are hidden to users by default.
