Multiple User Accounts make the Microsoft Surface RT perfect for the family
Microsoft Surface RT will launch tomorrow, starting at $499 and features a 10.6 inch screen with resolution of 1366 x 768. Pixel density comes in at 148ppi. A quad-core 1.3GHz Tegra 3 processor is under the hood with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. A 32GB capacity microSD slot expands storage and the camera on board captures video in 1080p.
Would the Multiple User Account feature make a difference for you if you're in the market for a new tablet? As long as you can work out a schedule or a way to share the tablet with others, just one Microsoft Surface RT can be the tablet that will be hard at work for the entire family. With this soft economy, letting more than person use the same tablet securely can save some cash that might be needed elsewhere.

But I am imagining a tablet either by Samsung or Asus which can dual boot Windows 8 and Android :)

And I am imagining a Tablet With UBUNTU Loaded as a serious and true challenger to Surface since it will be pure OS and not some APP ... UBUNTU has already demonstrated that it is possible ... if that happens then i need nothing as Linux does come with all office productivity tools :)

Multiple User Account is really a good feature. I see its use @ my home. On the same machine my dad can have his clean and office oriented desktop, my sis with her flowery, sunny desktop and me, with that cluttered and geeky screen :)
Surface will become successful.

Note that if you have separate accounts for each member of the family you will need to manage there app purchase separately. So if you have 3 kids and you want to purchase a £5 game you will need to do it for each user costing you £15.
