Hopefully this update will help someone in the future:

Feedback from Debian:

Debian has set the default user to be "admin" rather than "root". This is called out in the Usage Instructions, but those instructions are sometimes not seen in the normal path of 1-Click launching the product.


ORIGINAL REVIEW:

I've tried twice now, and both instances wont connect with the key-pair

(example command tried)
ssh -i keypair.pem root@5#.2##.1##.##

Giving up and switching back to Ubuntu instance. Please Debian, fix this.

ssh does not allow to connect as root? why change defaults? original debian allows it.

why create admin user? why not to use root by default, and let me choose first user name.
