I love the fact that it is single-user, no one else ever touches my
computer, and most other people I know that use windows use only one user.
In Linux I have to type sudo about 700 times a day, I configured visudo so
that I never need to enter a password, but it is still annoying. So yes,
there is some interest. I do realize that Haiku being multi-user would open
up lots of new possibilities, and thats probably the direction that it needs
to be going, but I like single-user.
I am interested in single-user, many others will not share my opinion
