Re: user account confusion (windows account inherited?)
The username shown in User Accounts is _not_ your Linux account name - it is just the full name that the Ubuntu refers to you as.
Its like having a nickname (username) and a real name that Ubuntu uses for most content, instead of your username.
You can easily change the name by unlocking the 'User Accounts' settings, and clicking your name.
