Microsoft "Sunday marks the tenth anniversary of Bill Gates's trustworthy computing memo, which made securing applications from the ground up a key priority at Microsoft for the first time. The directive followed a period during which Redmond took a sustained shelling over the instability and insecurity of its software, especially in Internet Explorer and Outlook, highlighted by the damage caused by high-profile malware outbreaks such as the rampaging Love Bug, Melissa and Nimda nasties."

Actually it didnt. While the OS itself may not have had problems, software did. I have run into countless software including some from Microsoft themselves that does not work correctly without being the admin user. Microsoft also failed miserably to promote this standard to all the developers out their.
