We can afford a processor for each process.

Utter nonsense. My laptop is basically idle at the moment – no builds or other big jobs running – and I keep things pretty stripped down, with all sorts of optional "features" disabled. It still has over 300 processes running.

Even in the 1980s on a typical single-human-user UNIX workstation I'd have several dozen processes in memory, and the run queue would frequently climb to half a dozen or so.
