10.3: Move and trash root-owned files from the Finder
Authored by: bluehz on Oct 29, '03 06:12:42PM

I have noticed that pretty much any file you try to alter - if you don't nromally have permission to alter it - will present a dialog now that allows you to enter a password and continue on your merry way. If they had put this feature in the initial build of OS X we wouldn't have heard so much whining about permissions, etc.

10.3: Move and trash root-owned files from the Finder

I think it's bad - I found out I can delete or view files of other people on my computer by just changing the owner in the info window, without using sudo or logging in as root. I don't think it was possible that way before.
