So we're gathering info on switching over in the design dept. where I work (I am basically heading this thing up because I've used Mac for a long time now) and I was wondering if there's some sort of comparison chart or other documentataion out there that shows what an Administrator account can do and access in OS X vs. what a non-administrator account can do and access in OS X? My concern is that we'll get them to approve these Macs and our IT dept will get their hands on them before we do (because apparently we're not intelligent enough to install software on a Mac, and I know they'll want to do EVERYTHING) and they will set up non-admin accounts for us on the machines, thus possibly crippling our ability to work in the most efficient way. I am worried about being able to tweak settings in System Preferences, installing free or open source utilities such as Linotype's Font ExplorerX for font management, Color management settings/calibrations, and managing things such as TimeMachine. I am just wondering what would be crippled since I've always had admin access on Macs that I've worked on. Thanks!
