    I'm at school right now. In the computer lab. Something that's interesting to me is that on the Windows computers, I need to type in my user name and password, and get taken to my desktop basically, set to my settings.

    On the Macs, I just pick the student account. No password needed. Often times have tons of files left on desktop other students downloaded.

    Can't they set up each student with their own account on the Macs? Or have they just not bothered?

    They can, they simply haven't, whether they know how, didn't see the purpose or just lazy is another thing!

    Basically the Macs can act in the same on a network as the Windows machines, you can even set them to accept the same username and password as the Windows machines and log you on to the same workspace/printers etc as you would see on your Windows desktop. This is nothing new or fancy.
