Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

IS there a way to have multiple users on OSX active at the same time, and switch between them by swiping to go between spaces, rather than using "fast user switching"?

I want to do this, because I like to keep certain different clients/employers as different desktops (and have my managed applications isolated), but sometimes need to switch between user accounts quickly. This would be much easier if I could use the spaces gesture instead of the fast user switching (which requires accessing a menu, and entering a password, every single time).
