Why is "multiuser" required for security - because it Is a proven and well known concept that has been in use for decades with success, it is used in all relevant computer systems today. Anyone have any alternative security concepts? I doubt it.
The context of this discussion was all those who want to make Amiga popular and sort of mainstream again, and I argue that this can never happen unless the OS is radically changed. Noone would _want_ to see any Amiga system reach the kind of popularity that it may atract exploiters. On the other hand, if a new OS is built, based largely on "the Amiga experience" (as seen from user's point of view, not coders/programmers), with a solid and secure foundation, then yes, maybe it would have a chance at becoming popular. However, Apple are pretty much already selling everything anything Amiga could hope to accomplish.
