There's two issues here I think.

Customization can be a pain to support so the basics of the OS are reasonably locked down.

Imagine trying to use someone's computer if they whistled instead of clicking the mouse, and burped for a double click, for example. It's bad enough with a left handed mouse set up, but if the whole ui is customize it would be a real pain. Also you'd want all devices to use the same paradigms for that user.

The other issue is in the 'learning' ui - ie the ui changing over time to adapt to the users requirements.

Ms tried that some time ago with menu options being hidden or moved depending on the frequency of use. Trouble is, people get used to selecting the third item downon the menu - so got it wrong when the menu option moved, or they used someone else's computer.
