I think multi-user support should wait for R2, and even then maybe not, perhaps it could be pushed off indefinitely.

Calm down! R1 won't be multi-user, but it makes sense to bear in mind a multi-user setting when designing things like filesystem layouts for new features.

There is certainly demand from the devs for multi-user support, so I am sure it will happen in future, but I'd bet there will be an option to use Haiku as a purely single-user system if you want.
