BeOS & Derivatives Haiku's 64bit port is progressing nicely. "As you can see, this looks pretty much like a regular Haiku desktop. There's still a lot of things missing, though - not many apps or drivers yet. However, most things should be fairly simple to get working, typically just a few compilation fixes."

Back in the days, PhosphorOS introduced basic multi user support. Also an (officially unreleased) ZETA 1.51 also supported multi-user support. I cannot recall experiencing incompatibilities with these implementations.

Note: PhosphorOS' implementation was not really secure: hitting control-alt-delete, killing the login task, and then clicking restart desktop gave you a desktop as the default 'baron' user. But this was experimental, and besides, PhosphorOS was a BeOS distro, so based on closed source software. (I think it was Dan0 based)
