I still have to occasionally manage a multi user SCO

couple of serial line printers.
I administer a handful of physical Sun / Oracle boxen running Solaris at
$DAY_JOB, each with a handful of local zones thereon. The local zones
have multiple people logging and running an application.
But these users aren't Unix users per-se. Rather they are running a
singular line of business application (or very closely related /
associated applications). This is vastly different than what I consider
to be a shell box, wherein people do all sort of things on the system:
- document processing
It's the multiple users doing different things on a common box that
seems so rare to me in 2023.
