BeOS & Derivatives Back when it was becoming clear that the time of the BeOS had come and gone, enthusiasts immediately set up the OpenBeOS project, an attempt to recreate the Be operating system from scratch, using a MIT-like license. The project faced difficult odds, and numerous times progress seemed quite slow. Still, persistence pays off, and the first alpha release is drawing ever closer. We decided to take a look at where Haiku currently stands.

NT? Multiuser? How? Two users could *not* use the box concurrently.

Operating systems like Linux allow two people to sign into either a CLI or GUI (or both) at the same time. That's multiuser.


Definition of multi-user can be discussed forever... but either way you're wrong.

NT3.51 was already multi-user capable - enter a product called NTrigue (technology now commonly known as Terminal Server).

Once an operating system supports the notion of different owners per process with proper separation and permissions, it is pretty much multi-user.
