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."

Because if any user is root, then any user can give any other user access to everything on the system without as much as an exploit.

You don't need a multi-user scenario to prevent things like that, you need something like sudo/UAC, a special passworded command that allows you to do things which can affect the actual system.
