I think it was Windows Me or Windows 2000... I think the first multi-user OS was WinXP.

I think NT was multi user as well but it's been ages since I've even thought about looking at that old OS.

I used NT 4.0, on a 386 dx-something. If memory serves it was multi-user. But all I did was use the administrator account. Not sure about NT 3.1 - 3.51.

Also fairly sure NT is why I started drinking.

Windows 95 had multiple user accounts, as did NT 3.1.
It looks like Window for Workgroups 3.11 was the last Windows to have a single user.

NT/9x were multi-user, but XP was the first multi-user OS where it was blatantly obvious to the general consumer.

Account "Roger" appears as "c:\users\user"
Hi all, I recently created a new user account on a win 7 home premium machine before I'd had much experience with win 7 (but years with 2000 and xp). Instead of users\Roger\ it created users\user which I now realise is not correct. (I didn't call my account "user", either, before you ask. :) )...
