Hmm supposed to be good practice right? It's curious, my observation is that many people who run linux and would never dream of running as root, happily run as administrator on Windows XP, 2K. I wonder why. It's certainly isn't because of ignorance. I asked one of them why, and they said Windows XP ,2K isn't really built to run without administrator rights, since it was very inconvenient as almost everything needed admin right. I don't know enough of linux to argue, but what do you guys think?
