don't format your sd because someone said so.

Your name here was always meaningless.

I'm very sure you were not the real Raspbian user number 1.

Find solace in the fact that you now have "proof" you were here before future generations and their fancy "Raspberry Pi OS", you survived the Raspbian era.


Just be glad you didn't name yourself "PixelUser1"

As regards the OPs complaint (for want of a better word), since we have official notice that the name change has been in the works for "several months", that would indicate that the name change was being planned *before* to OP selected his user name.
