BeOS & Derivatives Haiku's 64bit port is progressing nicely. "As you can see, this looks pretty much like a regular Haiku desktop. There's still a lot of things missing, though - not many apps or drivers yet. However, most things should be fairly simple to get working, typically just a few compilation fixes."

In a typical Ubuntu installation, you are the only user and can pass your credentials to the apps that need higher privileges.

A monouser OS with such behavior is equally secure than a multiuser OS.

In any Ubuntu installation, there are several users like root (yes, despite it not having its own login), dbus and nobody in addition to the end user's own account. A single user system, by definition, does not have that kind of privilege separation.

Oh I get it, it's "check your root privileges" all over again.
