Re: How is this a Linux issue?

Yes, in principle running Windows as an ordinary user without admin rights is quite straightforward. However in the real world (and particularly in the SME world where most work actually gets done) people have to run applications... not just Office and Internet Explorer, but horribly written monstrosities of programs often ancient in origin and specific to particular tasks or areas of industry.

Nine times out of ten these pieces of junk will simply not work without full admin rights, or if they do they don't work correctly.
