xbox and windows people from microsoft seem to take a more laid-back approach, thinking they're all Steve Jobs (RIP) and that a joke here and there will make everyone love them.
well, seems like their programmers are following.
I mean, that's a pretty Apple approach to things. When the iPhone 4's antenna was causing people grief, Apple's reply was something along the lines of "Don't hold the phone, then".
it was more like "you're holding it wrong".
but yeah, same thing basically. "get newer iphone/get windows 10 to fix it".

In fairness, this advice is pretty much up there with "does your hand hurt when you put it in the fire? Don't put it in the fire, then".
in fairness, comparing putting your hand in the fire with some herp derp wannabe programmer unable to properly parse strings while writing an operating system, is silly at most.

If you're doing something that breaks the computer, and you don't need to be doing it, then stop doing it. This is a far cry from antenna gate.

I can't really imagine a situation in which you'd want to call a user 'user', it's not like there should be other entities logging onto your system that way. All of which said, I'd be rather cautious about something that has trouble because of what the user is called. Like... what's going on there?

Resolution advice like that is often put into KB articles until a patch is introduced, but with non-urgent stuff like this, it isn't introduced right away.
It'll probably get patched too.
