When your user ID has the appropriate access rights and that no user has read/write exclusive access to the workspace, you can get read-only access to a workspace, no matter how many other users are using it. When another user has read/write access and commits the workspace, your view of the workspace does not change; you must detach and reattach the workspace to see the changes.
