I'm pretty sure it would be slower with multiple threads. I think someone mentioned that having too many threads would be impractical, so it probably just starts at one thread.

It will be slower than multiple threads, yes.  However, threads can set an option - FreezeOnIdle.  This option means that if the thread does not have focus, it is frozen and no longer executed until it is no longer idle.  This is useful for a notepad type of thing.  The notepad process would freeze when switched out, and resume when switched in.  Programs like Mosaic would be set to remain active on idle while compiling, for example.

That's a good idea. Is this already implemented? And what do you mean with this:
It will be slower than multiple threads, yes.
This can be interpreted as an confirmation of Deep Thoughts post, but in content it means something different, the way I read it, could you clarify it pls?

Yeah sounds like a cool idea. It would suck if you opened a game then quickly switched to a math program with teacher key or something, but the math stuff ran several times slower

Well, games would probably want FreezeOnIdle.  This would stop them from running when you opened up the math stuff.

I really hope teachers will allow KnightOS

Yeah I meant some sort of pause on them, so they resume when no longer idle.

Yeah, that's correct.  There will be an event driven system so that programs will know when they are about to be frozen, too, so that they can pause the game or something.
