Interesting Post on MS & Least privilege

Dana Epp’s ramblings at the Sanctuary : Microsoft, You’re not setting a very good example. I am disappointed.
An interesting post on Dana Epp’s blog talking about running as least privilege (or in this example not) in Windows (also you can read the odd comments from someone I can only assume was trolling ?!)
It’s real nice to see that the windows world is moving more towards the UNIX paradigm of not running as root unless you have to. I hope this will have a positive effect for end users too… Less of the frustration when being told that you have to be an administrator to install a media player !!! (apple quicktime in this example) would be nice….
