Windows As geeks, we're well aware of the importance of running as a normal user instead of as root (UNIX/Linux/BSD) or administrator (Windows). However, while this should be common knowledge to anyone reading OSNews, it's often hard to illustrate just how important it is - until now, that is. A report by BeyondTrust looked at how many security bulletins issused by Microsoft are mitigated by simply... Not running as administrator.

True but there are plans to implement a security model... at some point they realize this.. there are also some features that inherently need good multiuser support such as multi seat support which has come up in the past and even recently on the mailing list and forum

The current single user model was inherited from BeOS
