Is there anyone this doesn't apply to?

I suspect if you examine people's practices closely enough you'd find that most people (even security people) violate the principle of least privilege at least some of the time, Heck, Microsoft even went so far as to nerf the administrator account because they gave up on the idea of people only using admin sparingly. Does UAC now mean that people don't have to worry about least privilege anymore?  Does it give us a licence to be lazy about security? I don't know, but I'm going to continue using a non-admin account for day-to-day computing, regardless of the presence of UAC on my machine.
