Now, if you think multi-user OSes are not that good, I think
there is an OS with a different kernel somewhere (not Linux, not

a single user system.
Can't remember the name, I only remember that when someone on
linuxfr described it, I was really sceptical, because there will
obviously be tons of security issues with such a system.

There is a market (how large???) for a single user single task
computer and OS.

The problem is, if you use a system with a single user, then you will end with issues like what windows had (and probably still have when not configured properly): malwares can infect the whole system.

That is how I operate ~100% of the time. Security is a non-issue, I
have the only key to my house. It needs only one password to cove case
of physical malicious access.

What about software you ran as normal user with full rights doing malicious access to your hardware, thus being able to corrupt things like UEFI?

There would be advantages to a
maintenance password to guard me from making careless/dumb errors on
*MY OWN* machine. It would be extremely useful if its kernel supported
running unmodified Debian packages.

Linux is built as a multi user kernel. I guess any software using linux specific features, or multi-user based feature, like cups, for example, would need changes. At least to not try to create it's own user.
