Google This tweet from Tom Warren made me smile. So, it's 2012 and tablets are finally able to do what the Amiga did in 1985. Seems like a bit of a stretch to be excited about that, right? Sure, until I caught myself getting excited - only a bit, but still - by this piece of news. Update: removed me being an annoyed child.

I'm sure some will say they absolutely need this.
I just don't think it's very useful at all. A phone is inherently "single-user". You don't share a smartphone with many people. As for the whole "work/play" thing ... you don't need multi-user for that. Decently implemented profiles could take care of that.

I just hope they don't start using ACLs on the filesystem (even if it is just POSIX ACLs) because i see many an opportunity for bugs and weird behavior.
