Description From 2008-01-08 18:39:24
Desktop 4.0.2 LiveCD

For a GNU/Linux new-by, who knows not much about the system, the users, etc., it
is quite confusing: he knows that the system is called "ALTLinux"; if a user has
the same name, then it is difficult to realize that there are users and to
understand what is written in the shell prompt.

I'd suggest another distinct name for the first user, from which it would be
more clear what it is. E.g., "user", "first", "you", "I", "me", or ask the user
to choose one?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot the live CD
2. start a terminal
Actual Results:  
you see the username "altlinux" in the prompt

Expected Results:  
a better name for the user

Мне кажется разумным имя guest, тогда уж. 

А так, вроде в кноппиксе зовут knoppix-ом, или я путаю?

Еще как вариант "altuser"

В 4.0/branch исправления не будут вноситься уже технически (заглушена очередь
на сборку), поэтому прошу ошибки, актуальные для sisyphus/p7/t7, перевесить на
текущие ветки или сизиф.
