Adding a user in linux

I figured I should add John as a user on my netbook…okay, mostly just so I could learn how to do it, but that’s okay.  It’s really easy:

sudo adduser john

Then just follow the prompts and hey presto – it’s done.  I guess there’s also useradd, but I guess if you’ve got a Debian-based distribution, then adduser is better and takes care of most of the details for you.
