My thanks to all who came out for my presentation with Aaron Margosis last night at the Capital Area .NET Users Group. We had around 30 people, and Aaron and I quite enjoyed the strong interaction with the attendees. Hopefully, we convinced some folks to start running their machines using a normal user account. The good news is that many people said they would at least consider doing just that.
The bad news was that not a single person in the room said that they currently run their machines day-to-day with a low-privileged account. Not good. It also meant that I didn’t end up giving away some goodies that I brought with me (a handful of USB memory sticks), which I had intended to give to those who currently run using a low-privileged account. So just remember that you never know when there will be surprise rewards for doing the right thing. 🙂
