It's the same here in the USA too.  All those machines are almost always
configured as a single user box, however.  The number of people that
know how to create multiple accounts, and care enough to make everyone
use their own account, is fairly small.  Obviously it's more common for
families that have resident geeks around to educate them on the benefits
of making each user have and use their own account on the machine.
