Default user accounts in Unix Operating system
Hello all,

What are the default user accounts that gets added as part of the unic operating system.

Also let me know if i can remove any of these accounts due to security reasons???

unix is a lot of different things, and each variant does things in different ways. generally if an account exists, leave it, unless you specifically know you need to remove it. no account by default except root, would allow a login shell so risk is minimal if at all.

Which version of Unix (or maybe Linux?)

What problem are you trying to solve? e.g. why do you want to remove those accounts?
