Comment Re:The only reason for usernames... (Score 1) 71

Oh come on, just think about that for a minute. I'm setting up a new account and the system asks me to choose a password. I type in CorrectHorseBatteryStaple and the system replies that I can't use that as it's already in use.

With no usernames and the password as the only identifier, I now know someone's sign-on identifier. How well do you really think that would work?

I don't develop for Linux but I do build keyboards & program them using TMK or QMK firmware. Getting a development environment for this stuff installed in Windows in the past has been a bear. I just yesterday installed the Linux subsystem and it really does work. This is great 'cause I'm about to begin another keyboard project & I don't need to dual boot just to build the firmware.
