Just wanted to know, can 2 people use the same login and password?
Hi,

You can indeed log in with the same Username and password more than once, I know this because me and a friend used to share a dedicated server but we used to use the same username and password. We used to have a problem though, if I logged in and ran my server applications and the my friend logged in and ran his server applications. We both disconnected, when i reconnected I used to sometimes be able to see his session from earlier, so I had to go to CTRL+ALT+Delete then users and right click the other session and "Switch to" to get my session back with my applications running. (It doesnt actually stop them from working, it just stops you from being able to configure them unless you are logged into the right session)

One good thing about multi sessions on the same account, is that I could run my applications on one session and my friend could run his applications on his session, both at the same time.

I hope I've explained okay, in a nutshell it does work...but don't be confused by the 2 session thing.

Regards,
Chris.

Might be better to go with Ubuntu Desktop - it's free and there are no limitations.

Under the same username I don't know, but under separate, yes. Be aware you only get 2 remote access sessions on Web Edition. To use more you need standard edition.
