Hi!

Is Qubes a multi-user system?

No. Qubes does not pretend to be a multi-user system. Qubes assumes that the user who controls Dom0 controls the whole system. It is very difficult to securely implement multi-user support. See here for details.

However, in Qubes 4.x we will be implementing management functionality. See Admin API and Core Stack for more details.

I wanted to delete the old username and create a new one.
It’s done now.
