Which account type do you use for your everyday computing?

  1. I setup with the default admin account and use it as my primary account.

  2. I setup with the default admin account and then create a standard account for my normal use.

    Do you stay with the admin user acct or create a standard acct for your normal use?

    I set myself up as admin, and IF others use it they are standard. I know how to use my computer, and I just don't trust other people with my stuff.

    As far as myself being an admin, it's not like the root account, which is disabled by default. A normal admin is not quite the "superuser" that the root account is.

    Admin is fine. Anything that requires elevated rights will ask you for your password.
