I don't know how much this is going to be scoffed at here as it is technically illegal, but to finalize my decision about getting a Mac I tried out OS X some in a VM. But it was just briefly for experimentation. Reason I'm bringing it up here is that I discovered something perplexing that I want to know if it is true about the OS. Anytime it installed something or updated it asked my password, even though I had never set a password. It was impossible to make any administrative changes to the "computer" unless I went into preferences and made a password. And I couldn't find anything under preferences to make it not do this. Now I'm not a fan at all of account passwords especially for a desktop (I'm shopping for iMac) where I don't anticipate any security threats so I found it a bit troubling. I had one on my Windows laptop because I use it around school and everything but even then I just said the hell with this and took it off because it was so annoying having to do that every time I opened the lid. I'd like to know if this has something to do with the fact that it's virtual or does OS X really force one to use a password if they want to do anything other than what it's shipped with?
