Re: [opensuse] Re: Should openSUSE review it's Security Policies?

If I go to a client site, I shouldn't be able to configure a printer
so I can print things at the client site?

Perhaps, but in my experience (banking, airlines, IT) the client site is
unlikely to allow foreign equipment on their network.

The fact that some sites are secured from guests doesn't matter at all.

Other sites are not only open to, but expressly exist for, guests.
And many sites of course have both a secure and a guest network and it's a growing not a declining trend.

If you go to a hotel and can't use their guest printer or wifi that would just be utterly retarded no matter what anyone says.

Then again if I were the IT manager that decided to send people out into the wild without the root password to their laptops, I would _expect_ to have to work at it a little to figure out some special system setup (like sudo, acls, etc) to allow operations like that without root.

The "duh" award goes to both sides here.
