To be fair, much of Windows generally is set up like that too (although probably to a lesser extent). I can't count the number of times that I have had to go through a long, complicated way of doing something that should be very simple on a single-user or home-only machine because Windows is set up to assume multi-users and a corporate-style network.
The one that always makes me laugh (or tear my hair out in frustration) is when I get told that I don't have permission to do something and that I should contact my system administrator. So, according to MS, I do not have permission to do what I want on my machine, in my house, not connected to a company network, not part of a corporate environment and, if anyone is, I am the system administrator
(and blisfully unaware how to resolve the issue that MS has just told me to contact myself about).
