Hello,
I am on Yosemite and wanted to know what accounts are on the mac. I typed dscl . list /Users I grep ^_.* and discovered the following;

• daemon - is this the admin?
• Guest - obvious
• Me - obvious
• nobody – what is this?
• root - obvious

I couldn't anything with Google but then I couldn't phrase the right question.
:apple: experts please help!

Nobody, unknown, root and daemon are all typical users in unix/OS X. There's nothing to worry about.
