@iliana normally I just guess but @aschmitz assures me that it's adduser

@nightpool @iliana (I mean, I had a guess, but useradd(8) says "useradd is a low level utility for adding users. On Debian, administrators should usually use adduser(8) instead.")

@aschmitz @iliana

grep -i 'low level' /usr/share/man/db/{useradd,adduser}*

@nightpool @iliana enoent 🤷​ They'll both get you where you want to go, adduser is just a little friendlier on the way.

@aschmitz @iliana right, right, i'm just trying to systematize this into a rule i can remember.
