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.

>No restarts.. unless replacing a kernel driver, something I think should be possible to prevent in the future as well.

Already changed drivers without rebooting. I need a modified version on the Tulip driver to support my network card. Because I needed to experiment to do the mod correctly, I just choose "Restart NetWork" and the new version of the driver is load - no reboot.

I am also working on a sound drver that works thru the parallel port. Again, after compiling a new version choosing "Restart Media Services" loads up the new driver without rebooting.

I expect most BeOS drivers can be reload without any need to reboot.
