User (computing)

Users are also widely characterized as the class of people that use a system without complete technical expertise required to understand the system fully. In hacker-related contexts, such users are also divided into lusers and power users. In projects in which the actor of the system is another system or a software agent, it is quite possible that there is no end-user for the system.
