Porteus is meant as a live system so guest/root are enough.
introducing other user accounts is possible but not recommended as some things related to guest/root are hardcoded in our scripts.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Thanks for letting me know, it makes sense.
I was thinking of using porteus as the main pc in the house/office etc and wondered if multiple accounts could be created for this.
But I like the idea of carrying your pc around in your pocket :)

Im new to this distro so just getting oriented with it, Thanks again
