Hello. I have a webpart zone. Is it possible to limit what web parts user is able to add to that particular zone. For example user A should be able to add web parts A, B but user B should be able to  add web parts A, B and C. Also, is it possible to decide what web part user will see in webpart zone?

Hi!
I guess you cannot limit user edit permissions for particular webpart zone. Webpart zone is just asp.net webcontrol and it does not have such functionality (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.sharepoint.webpartpages.webpartzone_members.aspx).
But it is possible to set visiblity of webpart for specific users, using sharepoint audiences:

Hi Tolppa,
You have hit a roadblock here.. you cannot limit the user edit permissions for a particular webpart zone, although you can limit webparts availability for a group of user in your sharepoint site.
If you are playing with deployment of webparts manually, you can set to which webpart zone on the page it will be deployed.
