Windows Mike Nash, Microsoft's security business and technology unit corporate vice president, has said Longhorn would accord end-users certain rights and privileges apparently ending the concept that everyone using their PC is also the PC's administrator. Update: More on new Longhorn features here.

The news is not that this system will be implemented, but rather that it will be implemeneted *properly* now. Windows has some seriously advanced user management tools already, it's just that no one ever uses or implements them, *including* Microsoft.That will apparently change with Longhorn.

About time.
