What would pop up to install new software?
Helpful apps that want to help you install every pluggin known
(including plugins like flash that require a complete 32bit stack on a
64bit system to run)
And why would your friend click it?
Because users have a railroad approach to popups (just click yes)
Wouldn't he or she ask you about it?
Friends don't ask about every popup they click through when they get
guest access (or they don't stay friends long)
Also remember - you don't need root or a password to install
to your computer. You just download something that overwrites your
~/.bashrc, puts itself in ~/.config/autostart, or one of many other
methods. Like firefox extensions.
Firefox extensions are a security plague and a great example why
password-less install is bad in a guest context. I hope with FF3 we can
start packaging the useful subset everyone uses as rpms and de-emphasise
the FF autodowload
