well, if you want anyone who logs onto that computer to have access, you'd add it to the system path.

if you only want it to work for you, add it to user. if you're the only one who uses that computer, I don't think it matters.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
