comment Unique Features of bash compared to zsh
How are features that are unique to one or the other subjective? I'm honestly not looking for a flamewar and conceed that familiarity of one or the other is likely a good reason to prefer that shell.

revised Multiple *NIX Accounts with Identical UID
Remove references to GID, as it confuses the question.

I probably should have stuck with just discussing UID, as it is the more relevant item in the question.

This is true. The initial login would register as a1 or a2 in /var/log/secure, but subsequent activities get logged as a1 no matter how you log in.

Sharing group IDs is not so common, I think, as having multiple users belong to a single group. There is a subtle difference. The key really is in the UID handling. Good point on deleting, though, which I will test out.

Note, this isn't placing users in the same group, it is giving them identical group IDs. So there would be a group a1 with GID 5000 and group a2 with GID 5000. The more critical concept here is the identical UIDs, though, as you could get the group handling as you propose.
