On Mac OS X and Linux, it doesn't take an administrator's password to install software for personal use. On Mac OS X you can drag and drop wherever you want it; on Linux you can build it yourself or convince your package manager to install it into ~ instead of /usr.

If you want the software to be available to more than one user, *then* you need an administrator's password.

Is there a reason this doesn't work on Windows Vista?
