That depends on your definition of a "user" - there are quite a few users that are built-in for various daemons for security reasons. Check out your /etc/passwd file - that is the authoritive listing of all of the users on your system. If the number in the second column is <100 then it is a built-in system account, if it is >=100 then it is a "real" user account
