Long ago, Apple's Installer app team decided that the default target for library files should be /Library rather than ~/Library.

That single decision has had the upshot that for the last decade and more, Apple has been training its users to type in their admin passwords at the drop of a hat.

I've never understood why they didn't realise it would come back to haunt them. Now they're going to have to learn on the back foot.

Trying to be happy is like trying to build a machine for which the only specification is that it should run noiselessly.
