Creating Multiple User Accounts: Accounts

In this section, we touch on some of the basics involved in user account creation. First we will take a look at the multi-user system nature of Mac OS X, and then we will look at adding a user, setting user limitations, enabling fast user switching, understanding administrative user capabilities, and removing users.

Introduction to Multiuser Systems

Mac OS X is a Unix-based operating system. As such, it's a multiuser operating system; that is, everyone who uses the machine may do so by having an account on the machine. A user can use his account on the machine either at the console or via a network connection—if you choose to enable remote login from the sharing pane of System Preferences, which we discuss in further detail in Chapter 21, “Accessing and Controlling Tiger Remotely.”
