This is horrible!

Seems fair as the default for a desktop installation.

It's the opposite behaviour to what is the known behaviour of Linux.

The default should be for the superuser to manage the box, with an option for him or her to allow all users to install software on the box.


Once we get the new user management stuff into F13 [1], we'd probably
tighten that rule so that only admins are given the option, or all users
but with the need to authenticate as an admin.
