Why would it be a bad idea to install sheet linoleum with a staple gun? With today’s electric staple guns, it could be very easy and quick to install this way. Why would it be a bad idea to do so?

Ideally there should be no reason to ‘fix down’ sheet vinyl. You could use a propriety adhesive but the whole reson for sheet vinyl is that it is a complete hygienic covering to your floor and to then put holes in it with a staple gun not only makes holes through your flooring but provides a point where dirt can build up and render the floor ‘unhygienic’.
Not a standard method of fixing vinyl down but if not in a kitchen or utility then it’s a possibility I guess..
