Is it possible to start a screen session and have some other process attach to it without having the original process detaching it? Like two terminal windows seeing the same, for example.


It is definitely possible and extremely useful.

In order to attach an already attached screen session, to enter multi-user mode, the option you have to give screen is simply screen -x.
