I think it's one account per computer. You can sync 2 phones to one account but I don't think two accounts per computer is possible. Hopefully somebody here will prove me wrong.

Correct me if I am wrong but you can have multiple libraries on one computer (one iTunes) these can e linked to different iTunes accounts. This helps with separating accounts, music, and apps for families with multiple devices and only one computer (one iTunes)

Shouldn't you be able to sign out and have another person sign in if they have an account? If a family shares a computer one would think that could work.
