for the general use machine?
the suggestion was to have one account, no root access. then alan has
root access and maintains it in a 'good' state
the likelihood of people switching account for their use is pretty low,
it generally gets used by each person for a web search or two/website
update for maybe 10 minutes max. - but i might be wrong. also, I
personally wouldn't be prepared to do too much administration on it,
there's far more interesting stuff to do at tangle ball.
for the 'dev' machine from abhishek? maybe one account, with sudo
access, password written on the front. use it for anything, be prepared
to re-format and install again in 6 months.
