Or fedora for that matter, it gets a bit annoying.

Just set up a user account and transfer over the /home/user/ directory.. things are simpler in Linux, you don't need a complicated account transfer utility :)

What about importing between versions? I thought you could do that....I am dual booting with a gutsy one and I imported my settings from fiesty.

But yeah, it makes sense to at least prioritize importing from windows. *shrug* Interesting thought though.

The OP is talking about importing the user accounts themselves automatically, not data.

Thats what I was thinking about, but something must have just not clicked in my head or something. Disregard.

Even if it is a trivial task to import users manually using CLI commands, maybe some users will opt to do it automatically/ with GUI tools.

Importing users between distros would be very nice!
