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.

No, it didn't... AmigaOS had no concept of users, and neither did the filesystem...
You had to use a third party addon like MuFS (multi user filesystem) in order to get any concept of users, and even then it was very easy to bypass the permissions system if you wanted.

It was a single user desktop OS, just like windows, dos, macos and tos were at the time.
