Excuse my ignorance but I don't understand the disagreement here. Everyone gets that a user doesn't necessarily mean a human at the console so why fight over whether some programmed abstraction with or without certain privileges is called a user or not.

I don't know the gory details but even just looking at process explorer in windows it seems pretty clear that my user account is something different from SYSTEM, LOCAL SERVICE or NETWORK SERVICE.

Aren't you just agreeing that the term user is beyond stretched?
