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.

it probably just needs more development, although BeOS/Zeta was designed to be POSIX complaint (and thus support multiple users) it was also implemented with a single user in mind and all previous multiple users solutions have been hack-ons. There is probably a large amount of things that need to be changed to support multiple users and so for now it is easier to ask for a reboot after creating a user and focus on getting the rest of MU support working correctly
