User Connections

Something that’s new to many OS X users is multi-user capability. Many operating systems, Unix and Windows NT among them, have had this capability for quite some time. Until recently, however, the concept did not extend to every home or office computer. Instead, Mac OS (and its counterparts, Windows 95, 98, and Me) all relied on the concept of one computer, one user.
