Hi Everyone,

More of a sever 'philosophical' question regarding administering machines in our office. I'd like to know what your thoughts are for allowing local users to administer their machines, be able to install their own software/updates, etc.

We're in a small business environment but growing quickly. We have about 20 users. Some mobile, some not, and I'm just trying to get a grasp of what the best balance is. I'f like users to be able to admin some properties of the machine to fix small issues, but at the same time I realize that as we grow I would like less 'fiddling' with the machines to make sure everyone is running the same software and OS versions.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!
