    This is on my system:
    Code:
    frankel@sjfrankel:~% w
     9:55PM  up  4:28, 5 users, load averages: 0.18, 0.11, 0.09
    USER             TTY      FROM              LOGIN@  IDLE WHAT
    frankel          v0       -                 6:55PM  2:55 xinit /home/frankel/.xinitrc -- -nolisten tcp
    frankel          p0       :0.0              7:00PM    32 irssi
    frankel          p1       :0.0              7:01PM  1:03 zsh
    frankel          p2       :0.0              7:01PM    43 pork
    frankel          p3       :0.0              9:55PM     - w
    The multiple users thing just means I'm on different tty's doing different tasks. Having lots of users listed in the output of the commands "w" and "who" doesn't mean your system is going to be slowed down. Remember, Linux is a multi-user operating system.

    Or maybe I'm misunderstanding your question....

    no i mean hen i use the
    $users command
    it prints:
    username username username

    is there anyway i can make it only,
    "myusername"
    without any additional username, which is actually my own username

    I've never seen that issue before but I personally wouldn't worry about it. Just check the output of
    Code:
    $ who
