Privacy, Security, Encryption Vulnerabilities in USB drivers for Windows could allow an attacker to take control of locked workstations using a specially programmed Universal Serial Bus device, according to an executive from SPI Dynamics, which discovered the security hole. However, SPI tested attacks on Windows systems, but any operating system that is USB-compliant is probably vulnerable.

You are right for the most part. The technology, multi-user kernel extensions, was integrated into the kernel for Windows 2000 Server. I'm not sure exactly what changes (if any) were made to the multi-user model but there were overhead reductions. I've found almost no info on the extensions online. SFU on Windows uses the UNIX model.
