Why would this be silly? It was the same under WinNT and XP. I see no
reason to change it anytime soon.
Such a powerful option SHOULD be hidden from most users, and only available
to the Computer Administrator. My hope is that Microsoft WON'T make it
"easier" for users to login auto-magically.
What I think is silly is the ability to simply click to grant Administrator
permission for various operations. It should be DIFFICULT to grant Root
permission, not EASY. Even mouse-clicks can be programmed into malware
installation if needed, after all.
