A Username was pre-installed (PearlMATE 5.0)

When I installed Pearl OS, there was a username - let's say it was Frank -- in the Username area in the Password set up. I had to change it.

Is this right? Or was the OS compromised?!

Sounds about right as I have the same thing "Scott" in that field during installation.
I have seen it in a few other places also but can't recall just now. Scott is the developer of the Pearl Linux Distro as far as I know so don't think it is any cause for concern. Did you 'check sum' the file you downloaded?

I would speculate that it is something to do with whatever is used to create (Pinguy?) the .iso file but just a guess.
