BeOS & Derivatives Can you believe they've come this far by now? Once known as OpenBeOS, Haiku today announced the release of the fourth alpha for Haiku R1. It seems like only yesterday when BeOS died and OpenBeOS rose form its ashes, generating a new hope among the legions of avid BeOS fans. Now, almost twelve years later, we've hit the fourth alpha.

Multiuser is something of a fail... outside of the University mainframes when I was in college, I've NEVER seen or needed multiuser support in any capacity, be it home or work, in over three decades in the computer industry. Not to say they shouldn't work on it, just that there are much more important features they should work on first.

Note that privilege/protection level is separate from multiuser. For normal usage, the single user shouldn't be running at a "root" level. This is a security issue more than a multiuser issue.

If you have processes running with different user accounts, you have multi user.

And you need to do that because...? Especially on a Desktop machine which runs no server processes.
