    Yes. Just go into System Preferences, then Accounts. You can setup multiple user accounts from there.

    Absolutely, just like you can in Windows.

    I wasn't able to get a screencap of the last one, so I did a Google Image Search. But just like Windows, you can also use Fast User Switching (meaning allowing more than one user to be logged in at once).

    Of course. Each OS X account can be set up with a different iTunes account. If you mean having two different iTunes Store accounts on one OS X login, you could, you'd just have to keep logging out of one and into the other. If you mean two different libraries entirely but still in only one OS X account, that's doable too. Just hold down Option while iTunes is opening and you'll get this dialogue:

    Setting up multiple users gives each user access to only the stuff they use. If user 1 has 20,000 tunes and user 2 has 500, they don't see each others. It's a real lifesaver on a school system with users taking different classes.
