Zeta takes a first look at the ZETA's multiuser capabilities currently under development. This is "a first beta, usable but still incomplete and with bugs" reports ICO. The article uses screenshots to show what multiuser looks like in ZETA, and describes how to create user accounts, as well as some of the existing problems with the implementation which, hopefully, will be fixed before release. As Magnussoft told us a few days ago, multiuser support will be available as an update to the upcoming ZETA 1.21, but no release date is mentioned.

I don't know if I will use it as a full time OS but I'm definintely looking forward to the day Haiku is released and I install it. Why? Because I like to keep my options open for other operating systems. One may do a job better than the others.

Killer app? BeOS was supposed to have killer multimedia support, I wouldn't know since I never had a chance to try it. What I'm sensing from you is that they shouldn't work on BeOS/Haiku/Zeta because its old. This is why they are revamping it. The problem is if someone doesn't do something new then we are pretty much stuck in the now instead of looking to the future. Although BeOS and any of its decendants may not have the killer app right now, who's to say it won't have the killer app in the future? It never hurts to try, which is what I believe these guys are doing.
