I own Apple computers at home since the 13. December 2003 - an iMac G4 including Apple Care Protection Plan was my first. I have switched from OS/2 to Mac OS X at home to have a UNIX® based system (secure and stable) and a great Graphical User Interface (GUI) like the Mac OS has it all the time.
Today first time the Apple Care hotline said "archive and install" as a solution because they see no chance to find the reason why I have a ghost user on my system. See at the screenshot
where you can see on the right a user name portage which isn't available at the left (preferences and file system).
Okay, after updating from pre-installed Jaguar to Panther to Tiger release of Mac OS X and from an iMac G4 to an iMac G5 (I have cloned the operating system via FireWire cable), now I have to spend some time to re-install the whole system.
For me who works with Solaris™ operating system every day it is nothing special to have a solid and secure system. However, the most users on this planet do not own a Sun workstation or an Apple computer. This majority of users re-install their system more often and have more experience in it.
