Here's a real reason to make multi-user work...

Kracs writes "HP are supplying their low-cost multi-user 441 desktops
to African schools. Running Mandrake Linux, and sporting four screens
(1xTNT2 AGP, 3xTNT2 PCI), keyboards and mice (1 PS2 set, 3 USB sets)
they provide relatively cheap computer access for up to four users (of
particular interest to schools in low economic zones). However,
according to this article on New Zealand's Xtra news page they've only
manufactured enough to outfit schools in South Africa. HP has commented
that they're talking to several organisations and are hoping to bring
the PC to market in other regions but have stated they will only be
marketed to developing countries." (Remember, there are also home-grown
methods to achieve similar results.)
