Thanks that is good idea, of just adding adding a user and
keeping the Pi user id too. I haven't
used a windows PC for years on a regular basis, and also haven't
been a system admin on Unix
for over 20 years now and there have been a lot of changes in

remember quite a lot though. I was just hoping there might be
some write up on some pitfalls
to watch out for.

like my laptop currently does.
