Our IT department told me today that they are no longer suppose to grant us admin rights on our development laptops. I am not sure how that is even possible...

    Well, if it's configured correctly it should be fine. They'll probably have to answer lots of "I want this software installed" ticket though.

    Ask if IT can take a desk next to you so they can enter their password every two minutes...

    @rookiemaverick interesting thing about windows development, our workplace had all windows devs, and never had admin rights for as long as i can remember. No complaints. I guess best practices do have the concept of least privilege, where by devs dont get such rights.

    @CatMDV here, corporate proxy fucked up everything. It's so hard to configure all the things that admin rights doesn't matter 😏. Pip, go get, vs code, docker, npm etc etc.
