Gnome Honest question. Do you think the GNOME project is as healthy today as it was, say, 4 years ago? Benjamin Otte explains that no, it isn't. GNOME lacks developers, goals, mindshare and users. The situation as he describes it, is a lot more dire than I personally thought.

On my Windows 7 laptop, even a user on the Guest account can connect to a wireless network without needing my password or the Admin password; the user would only need to know the router's wireless passphrase or WPS key. On my old Mac mini it was the same way; connecting to a wireless network shouldn't involve local security at all. That's what WiFi encryption and passphrases are there for.


It is the same with Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora or any Desktop Linux I've used apart from Opensuse - this is not a Gnome issue, you only need to elevate if you are changing other users accounts and this is as it should be.
