When I started using Linux (which was shortly after a certain person 
sent out a message that mentioned Minix and said his version would never 
get large), it was 'user private group' and just because people started 
calling it 'primary group' doesn't make it so. However, if you want to 
call it 'primary group', who am I to stop you ?
