The short answer to this question is yes, assuming you mean if two different
people log on they'll for instance get two separate home directories. If
you mean multiple simultaneous users, e.g. multiple users ssh'ing into a
single Cygwin installation at the same time, I don't know (I've never had
the need to try it), but I think the answer is also yes.
