Update: More on new Longhorn features here.

The problem wasn't that users were too lazy/ignorant, but that developers wouldn't (and some still don't) allow users to run their programs in a limited user account.

A valid point, but I still don't believe the vast majority of Windows users would have bothered to set up and use limited accounts.
