Cor Kevenaar commented
yesss i need thiss so much becaus i have more than 60 sites to update :(
Michael Reiter commented
this would be useful because you have to update joomla only once for all the sites. But ONLY if updating joomla to the next version (including the extensions!!!) is a smooth process. Remember the migration from 1.0 to 1.5 and 1.6. Should the update create problems, it would mean it creates problems to all your sites!!!

I have actualy had several requests for this. Would be very useful!
Multisite with multi database system would be perfect.

Very much required
This could be useful since the available third party extensions are very complicated. WordPress has this ability build in as well, but I [resume it will be not so easy to put this in the core without creating a lot of overhead for people who do not use this function.
Perhaps the solution could be to give an option during install so that no redundant code is installed if there is no need for it.

Great idea, I use this feature in Bitrix CMS. very useful
I think Guy Jeffries said it best. What people mean by "multisite support" are a multi database Joomla in one instalation (availiable in Joomla 2.5 if I´m not mistaken), where the databases used are determined by the url. This can be used to have multiple domane names in one instalation and / or multiple databases for one domane name.
We Need this feature. i have made same way as Core Multilanguage functionality in joomla 1.6+. N site with one admin. but people want this feature in core in near future.

This idea is underdeveloped as described here. Look at the multi site solutions that already exist and you can see the devs have had to work up a few options to cope with different scenario's and I have different ones which are not represented by any assets that currently exist on the JED.
I think this would be better packed down into it's component parts and by bringing these part together it will be possible to make a variety of different solutions as well serving other possibilities that are not about different sites, such as landing pages from email campaigns or multi databases for one site.
I think what is actually being asked for here is a multi database/prefixed-table-set which can be chosen based on the url. A plugin which does that alone would do the majority of the heavy lifting for a multisite solution, this could even just pick on some tables and share others. Perhaps a URL choosing rules system not unlike the ACL system with the users being domains and the access being db tables. After that it's just a way of presenting different database set-ups based on the data set for the site - cloning, new install etc.
One area of multi-sites which look to have have added massive complexity is different load outs of assets which with the ACL system appear to me to be redundant now.

Yes multisite yes for multisite
yes, we can do it by developing a component. like onrevenue.us/aneesh. But joomla need some core level modification.
