Users is an abusive term denoting drug addicts in many European countries please find an alternative less insulting phraseSnoozebob 15:25, 13 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Would "end-users" be a more acceptable term or is that too specific?

"System users" "Customers" "clients" "utilizers" In the end, they all reduce to "users," as in "users of the final delivered product." The fact that 'user' may also be slang for 'drug user' or 'drug addict' does not preclude its appropriateness in the context of this course.
