There is usually a reason why "anal-rentntive IT folks" lock down
the computers for users...

Usually admins lock down computers in order to keep the computers
running as stable as possible, since users have a tendency to do
things that might not be advantageuos for the system as a whole,
thus minimizing maintenance and re-ghosting etc.

IMNSHO users are at times less than ignorant, and most of the time,
just plain ignorant...

What's keeping you from getting more from your terminal servers? Did you know, 
in most cases, CPU Utilization IS NOT the single biggest constraint to scaling 
up?! Get this free white paper to understand the real constraints & how to 
overcome them. SAVE MONEY by scaling-up rather than buying more servers.
