Offtopic: passwords

This page wasn't supposed to be typical blog. I was planning to "post" my texts first and then after knowing what I have, assemble them into a working page. Ou well.

I noticed this post written by Linus Torvalds about passwords. And I really think that he is correct saying that it is not security that we need to use admin password (or any other one either) everywhere.

I wonder why (at least in most of the cases) there is no easy possibility to CHANGE why and when the computer asks your passwords (your own, admin password....)? Then the people who want the computer to ask passwords all the time can have that and the others who prefer lesser passwods inquirys can also be satisfied.

Just saying.
