Zeta IsComputerOn.com 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 hate having to log in as an admin or use the command line or "run as another user" to start a special process as the admin user

With my suggestion, you would be logged in as an administrator the whole time, but that wouldn't mean anything until your privileges were elevated for a certain process. Only people that should never be allowed to change the system would use non-admin accounts, like random visitors on a library or school computer for instance, or your 7 year old son.

The hard part would be to design the user interface in such a way that you didn't find the "run as" step cumbersome.
