It is a common problem for Windows users that their default directory
(equivalent to a home directory) has spaces in it.

In recent versions of Windows the home directory is often c:\Users (and thus has no space). But the directory that contains most programs has a space in its name: "C:\Program Files".

Windows user names can contain spaces.  For example

   "C:\Users\Bob Friesenhahn".

my Windows 7 install came by default with several user names containing spaces.

In a corporate environment, it is not uncommon for users to have no control over the user names selected for them.
