I think the picture shows pretty much the current situation in terms of security and why people should work towards a better, safer system.
I know a temporary privilege elevation feature is already in place in some platforms. For example the Mac OS nags you for authentication when you want to install a software or update. And even if you are an administrator you are not "root" (which is disabled by default on Mac OS).
The same type of security is coming from Microsoft with Windows Vista enhanced security features, which includes an extended User Account Control (UAC step-by-step guide).
Why is this important to note here? Because there are no doubts that Windows is the platform of choice for the majority of companies, and the default platform for many users who purchase they systems from OEM manufacturers.
