Google This tweet from Tom Warren made me smile. So, it's 2012 and tablets are finally able to do what the Amiga did in 1985. Seems like a bit of a stretch to be excited about that, right? Sure, until I caught myself getting excited - only a bit, but still - by this piece of news. Update: removed me being an annoyed child.

You have no idea about technical implications and I don't blame you, not everybody is an engineer.


You don't need to be an engineer for that. I am a software developer, I've been playing around with OSes and software ever since I was 12 years old - that is 18 years ago. But really, you stubbornly refuse to listen to anything and cling to your delusions and I can't be arsed to continue this.

I'm only saying that supporting multiuser is a trade off.

It's not free, there's a lot of technical implications, It adds complexity. That's a fact, not an opinion.

In a personal mobile device, I'm not willing to pay that cost.

I'm afraid that you cannot use iOS or Android, then, as both already have all the low-level stuff in there already and thereby you are "paying" the cost every time you use such a device.
