Every respectable OS/distro packages daemons to run as separate users.
Every respectable piece of software separates privileges and uses
sandboxing / hardening techniques, like chroot, pledge, yadda yadda.

Linux the kernel sucks in a lot of ways, but it also does get a lot of
things right. There is a notion of sub-uids and sub-gids, so that
different programs run by ordinary users can each get their own,
separate, unprivileged UID and GID:

They both suck in their own, unique, horrible ways. Comparing them is
like comparing turds and vomits.

If you want a suckless phone TODAY, go get a Nokia 3310, or DIY one
using an Arduino kit. If you want suckless web TODAY, disable
