New Install: Admin vs User for installs etc.
After 2 hours on with AppleCare, I did a fresh install of Leopard. In doing so, I created an Admin account and my normal user account (as a standard account) because I read that, for security, it was better to do things this way.
Obviously, I know all the login data for the admin account, but should I install software from that account or is it fine or even better to do so from my general usage account.
Any other tips on ins and outs when one has two accounts set up in this manner?
