Would know if Freespire has the same security flaw that Linspire has?
Everything by design in Linspire is run as 'root'. The GUI desktop. The

On a single-user computer there's not a whole lot of value in
preventing yourself from being able to destroy other user's
work - which is what you get from the effort of not having
admin privilages all the time.

Also, if you really think there are security bugs lurking in the
programs you are running, wouldn't you prefer that they be
found and fixed instead of worked around, avoided, and allowed
to linger forever?
