To be fair, Microsoft has been preaching "don't assume you're an admin" 
to developers for a long time. On the other hand, it's only in the past 
year or two that they've gotten serious across the board about it 
themselves, although the major product groups have been aiming toward 
LUA as a requirement for a while now.

If nothing else, Vista will be good because it will finally push forward 
LUA as the default.
