The basis was that everybody had the MyDocuments on their local
drives, and someone gave the possibility to move their data to a eg
Z:-drive, but I don't se any difference between locaating ther
personal data avaliable on MyDocuments directly on a server - each
user with his own login/share. What wouldn't allow the virus to do any
more harm than if it was on their local drives.

- and to make all users have it possible to mount //server/$USER to
Z:\ and point MyDocuments to Z:\ that way you choose your acces
methoide yourself as a user ;-)

Ofcourse - otherwise we're not longer than Win9X regarding
data-security/privacy ;-)
