117. About Administrative Responsibilities

There are two kinds of users in Mac OS X: standard users and Admin users (or administrators). Standard users have limited capabilities; they cannot change global preferences for the computer, modify system files or hardware settings, or install applications. (They can, however, read and burn CDs, play games, and do many other things that require ordinary hardware access.) Admin users, however, have total control over the system's behavior and can change anything they want.

▸ KEY TERM

Admin user— A type of user who is granted the capabilities to change global settings, install applications, and make other changes to the behavior of the entire system.
