I don't understand why so many has problems with this, it's a security
risk (not a big one but still...) and it's not the UNIX way to be able
to execute programs if not the execute-bit is set on the file.
Speaking of Microsoft and Vista why do so many have problems with
that? You have to type a password in Linux to when accessing hardware
or changing things in the system.
