This is very, very annoying - are alternative systems specifically aimed at tech-head/geeks only, and not for the rest of us?!
At least the YAST program in all the major linux distro's I've seen to date, make it obvious that you are creating a user account as part of the process.
I saw no such info during the FreeBSD install, so what on earth am I supposed to enter at the login/password prompt.
I'm really wanted to give alt. OSes a spin, but confess - despite what everybody say's about Microsoft - at least it bleedin' works!
