One important thing about a multi-user operating system is that each user will manipulate the OS differently. If there is an error log that can be uploaded and scanned, the tech support team for the OS can see how unique combinations of actions cause problems. This way, they can patch and update the software for the next release with improved functionality and security.

The purpose of the multi-user operating system is to allow multiple users to personalize some of the settings. It also allows multiple users to save files with a certain amount of privacy and security, so that others cannot get to them and change them accidentally or on purpose.
