Right, so a new iMac is on it's way to me, a long overdue update to my much loved iBook G4. The iBook being my first mac, It was my experimental machine as I didn't quite understand the system etc but i loved getting to grips with it. Now that i've got a chance to start afresh, i fancy doing things a bit more neatly and uniformly and so i have a few questions about how you lot use the accounts system. On my iBook, I simply created one account on startup, as I was the sole user of the computer. I assume this automatically gave me admin privaleges. Is this set up recommended? Or is it somehow adantageous to have an admin and then a separate User account that you use all the time? Isn't it a hassle having to logout when you need to perform admin tasks, install new apss etc? Also, when installing apps on my iBook, I often got the choice to install apps for "just this user" or "all users of this computer". Being the lone user of the mac, I wasn't sure what difference this made, and forgot what i had done previously, so half my apps ended up in each catergory give or take. What option would you recommend for this? Does it relate back to my earlier question? Sorry for the mini-essay, answers would be much appreciated.
