consistent UIDs across multiple systems.

Consider never to use a search engine and to e.g. search using a term
as e.g. "linux change user id" :p. -> linux change user id ->

FWIW the first user on Linux usually gets the ID 1000 and on FreeBSD
usually 1001.

Be careful with changing ownership of directories and files using the
find command. I don't remember why it's tricky, but once I changed
ownership on a FreeBSD install from 1001 to 1000 and IIRC the FreeBSD
mailing list community and I failed to notice an issue when using find.
