I think this is more of a FAQ for Windows XP Home than it is for
postgres ;-)
But granted, we could put it in our FAQ as well.

I think more people don't complain because:
1) The guys who run postgresql on their machines generally don't run XP
Home. It's way way too limiting.
2) The guys who run XP Home have no idea what a user account is, and
therefor don't know that it's not removed :-)
3) They just don't care and use a new username.

The ones that fall outside this are the ones that ask...
