Zeta Only a few weeks after the first release of ZETA 1.21, Magnussoft has just announced some details of what can be expected from the next version of ZETA. According to the announcement, the central piece of ZETA 1.5 will be what magnussoft calls project MediaFire, a completely new application for CD and DVD burning, the long awaited multi-user capability and an upgraded SAMBA implementation.

You do not seem to understand how big an update multiuser is. BeOS is a single-user OS, and making the OS multiuser is a HUGE undertaking. I'd say it warrants a 2.0 designation even.

While its a big change and probably would warrant a 2.0 version #, BeOS had the beginnings of multiuserness already in it. Just wasnt used iirc.

I hope it works well.

Well partly perhaps, like fileowners, but nothing doing something with it. AFAIR, Be wanted to implement multi-user but didn't see a way to do it without breaking things. Personally, I think it should be doable with some ugly hacks, and PhosphorOS did it after all, but it does take some effort to make user's directories hidden from other users et al, and not just switch wallpapers around. I don't actually know how far it's implemented in Zeta though.
