In all fairness... the situation in Windows is getting better while the
situation in Linux is getting more relaxed. When it comes to the user
experience, Win7 and Ubuntu now have more or less the same security
model WRT doing administrator tasks (asking for a password, sudo-style).
And even in Windows XP you *could* do it right (don't run as admin),
but several applications forced people to do it wrong... and the default
was to run as admin.
So now the difference is mainly that *nix has execute permissions on files.
Everything else is converged or converging.(*)
