  In a multiuser environment, you don't know what the other users are
doing. Traditionally, it's the OS's job to protect you from them. I
don't know how an OS that allows you to muck with everything can also
protect you from someone else's mucking around.

  There nothing keeping a single user machine from acting as a server.
Just have SERVER login as the user.
