Not Bad, Microsoft...

Ok, I'll give Windows 7 this: it's privilege separation is much more manageable. I don't have to right-click to "run as" to do elevation - it just prompts me, as necessary, to select an admin-enabled account to do the operations. Makes it easier/more practical to run with a plain user account. FINALLY.

Now, if the lazy app writers would address privilege levels in their programs. Not EVERYTHING needs to run with system or administrator privileges.
